  1. It’s a great bird, and as rails go relatively easy to see.

  8. Hi Bob,
    Wonderful images of the Water Rail, a bird I have heard calling whilst on duty with the Osprey but only seen the once this year.
    All the best, John

  10. What a beautiful water rail. He/she looks like they are floating on the surface, but I bet long legs sink into the mud!

  11. Bob's Photo - Music

    The look is flying
    to the sun

    The hand is carrying
    his heart

    The voice is running
    to our ears

    And we all
    - his friends I mean -
    are "hanging" from his clic

    I admire you my real friend.

  17. Estupendas fotografías. El hecho de tener sus patas totalmente hundidas en el agua le da un aspecto muy peculiar.
    Un abrazo,

  18. Lovely photos of what can often be a very elusive bird (though our local water rail is quite the show off!)
