Moorhen with large Fish

By pink  
Never seen this before, this Moorhen was really struggling to kill and eat a rather large Fish, it was probably unwell as I cannot see a Moorhen that able to catch a fish this size, when it let go the fish did try to swim off only for the Moorhen to dive down and bring it back to the surface.

Interesting behaviour to watch and record - I didn't realise they did this either!
