22 Oct 14 - Water Rail

Whilst trying to relocate the Long-tailed Duck that I had seen earlier close to the visitors centre, I bumped into this Water Rail. What a shame it was such as grey day, as this could have been a really nice set of photos in sunshine.
Water Rail: Typical skulking view in the reeds
Water Rail: It then tried to quietly swim across a channel
Water Rail: But it quickly lost its bottle

Water Rail: Almost made it to the safety of the reeds
