This shot of the corncrake taken last year
Found mainly in the outer hebridean island its very secretive bird you hear them but very seldom see them
Thank you for your comments and votes
Wow - this is so beautiful and love the use of DOF and the resulting blurred background and the crisp detail of this lovely bird..Jo
Holds a good line through the frame Mike ,never seen one before great detail ,incredibly shallow dof.
A bird I have seldom seen on site here, but from a documentary about them on TV a year or so back, I believe a colony of them can make life almost intolerable for the locals, the noise they put up being just a bit OTT.
Nice shot of this visually shy bird, Mike.
Nice to see these unusual birds. This is extremely well captured.........Sandy
A really terrific capture ,lovely bird and detailed image.........
A wonderfully detailed capture of this shy but noisy creature.
A top class capture, fantastic detail in the plumage. Carol

Have heard of these but never seen one Mike. An excellent capture. Moira
Fabulous shot. This takes me back to0 holidays in Donegal when we were apparently surrounded by them and we were woken at 4.00 in mid summer as they called from the fields. I only have to close my eyes and I can hear that unearthly craking. We never saw them though.
wonderful contrast and fantastic detail and light. well, just perfect.
Nice one, not a bird you see everyday.
Wow! What a super capture. A
'Superb & sharp capture' ~ Peter
