Water Rail (Rallus aquaticus)

By DerekL  
Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote/comment on my previous upload of a Jay, especially to Brian Carroll, Helen Holt and Brad Chappell for their valued User Awards.

Here is a Water Rail walking on ice at the edge of the lake, that I took at The Wolseley Centre, Nr. Rugeley, Staffordshire, UK.

This is a super shot. We just about saw one today Derek, we were in a hide at Bashley Park, but it ran into the reeds before we could even lift our cameras. One for another day hopefully. Pam
