Water Rails

This was a birthday trip from Mike.. early morning
set the scene... mattress in the water.. yes, you have to lay on there
but there's ice on top...SO? bad back as well, down the slope I go
OMG that was cold laying in the stream, but we got some great photos
but was again in his bad books... could only lay there for 40 minutes
and had to get out.. you guessed it!! disturbed the birds
was wet through and frozen

Another from the Scottish Boarder Hides

Gosh the efforts you go to Lillian. No wonder you get such good images. Water rails. I have only ever seen a youngster and it was quick footed. Debs

As said it before, Lillian; you do suffer for your art.
However, shot's like this make it all worth while...Later, when back home and warm and dry. Smile

Excellent birding , Lillian! SmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmile

Amazing shot Lillian, your description sounds very austere, perhaps there is a tropical version with similar birds, for those who like warm water 🙂 Hot Water Rails, at the hot springs? You never know... wishful thinking perhaps. Only seen a Water Rail once, they can move very fast! It was by my pond.😀
