Spotted Crake 04
Spotted Crake 06
As the flood waters
subsided here in Gloucestershire, the rotting vegetation
attracted many flies. This occasional visitor near
Cheltenham was obviously attracted to this treat.
A difficult bird to photograph, it was only on my third
visit could I get some sharp images, but I had to shoot
at 400ASA to get them - the bird hardly stops moving and
it prefers the shade! Note the flies on the water
in the lower photo.

A typically shy and elusive bird that
brings great excitement to those who see one.
