Crex crex

Shetland has been blessed with at least 5 singing male Corncrake so far this spring. In June I was able to photograph this very cooperative male down to just a few feet - thanks to the landowners for their cooperation and endless cups of tea! With news reaching me of another bird close to home, it looks as though there will be a few very late evenings / early mornings for me over the next few days.
