Spotted Crake at Grove Ferry

A short visit to Grove Ferry Bank holiday Monday produced distant views of a juv. Spotted Crake on the back of the main pool , it was quite elusive most of the time but did show now and again , it was spooked by a juv. Water Rail at one point and the size difference was very notable.

Also present was a fantastic Wryneck feeding along the path just past the Feast hide , it spent most of its time feeding on the ground giving great views through the scope , this was a great find by Martyn Wilson and Chiddy. Sorry for the lack of photos in this post .

There is still time to take part in this weeks quiz if you fancy it , just leave your answer in the comments .
Mystery bird ?????

I will reveal correct answers tomorrow ( Saturday ).


Thanks for taking the time to add a comment on my blog.
