Water Rail - Rallus aquaticus

Caught this one at the Willow Hide, Slimbridge WWT. The second time I had ever seen it, what a creature. I couldn't quite get a whole picture of it, it was too close.

Please look at my website bobswildlife.co.uk. There is a photo of a Northern Pintail, and the first of the Waxwing by John Truman and by Richard Pegler. And a photo of  the Nuthatch in the 'Guest Photos '.
