Spotted Crake at Oare Marshes.

Spotted Crake out in the open.

I spent several hours trying to see this stunning Spotted Crake and finally got my reward last Saturday  14th September .  Here are a few pics i managed to get .

Red based bill.

Note buff under tail coverts.

The Spotted Crake showed really well however apart from when it first appeared it was always behind reeds , i always think the white spotting on crakes looks like it has been added by tipex , this was a new patch bird for me at Oare .
