  3. This is certainly one of the most accessible of all the rails and you have taken advantage of this to get a fine series of pictures.

  16. Hi Bob,
    A bird that is showing at numerous reserves around us at the moment but so secretive, I watched some on Thursday but they would not come out of the reeds. Wonderful images of such a delightful Rail.
    All the best, John
