Water Rail - Titchwell

I got extremely lucky at Titchwell last Friday. On the walk back to the car I came across not one, but two Water Rail. Each were in the ditch at the side of the path, only on different sides. There was already a bit of a crowd, but it didn't seem to disturb the birds in the slightest. They carried on their foraging and allowed me my best and closest views ever. Some late afternoon sunshine just added to the moment and lit the birds up beautifully.

Excuse the grasses once again.

  1. It's such fun to see your photos of birds we don't have here in the States. This is a very cool little fellow (or perhaps he isn't little - it's hard to tell through a photograph).

  9. Once again, extraordinary. Your photos are so sharp, clear and beautiful. I can almost feel the air that surrounds the bird....warm, tropical and a bit humid, as I view these beauties!!
