A stunning capture of this wonderfully colourful and so very beautiful Water Rail, an image of which we don't see that often on the site.

Superb Ed.

I have never seen this bird before altho the name is familiar, so interesting to see a species that is new to me, Ed.
And many thanks for your kind and extensive comments yesterday.
