Juvenile Water Rail

This often heard but not seen bird lives inside dense reeds. I wasn’t there to photograph this, I was sat inside my Bag Hide waiting patiently for a Kingfisher to turn up. For the 2nd evening at RSPB Middleton Lakes, nothing. However, a consolation prize was this Juvenile Water Rail that came out of the reeds for a brief moment.
