The very often "shy & elusive" Water Rail posing nicely back in July at the local nature reserve.

Thanks for C&Cs on last upload & for looking!

Take care, Lou

Very nice shot Louise, shy and elusive indeed. I've only ever seen one once and managed a few shots, but none as good as this, excellent work.

A very well observed, composed, exposed and captured ornithological image with beautiful light, colour and pin sharp detail Lousie...

You've ticked the boxes with this one Louise.
Don't have many chances to get these in the open, let alone on a perch.

A real belter Lou, how on earth did you manage to coax this one out of the reedbeds and up onto that branch?
