A Juvenile Water Rail.

Popped down to Marsh Lane early Sunday morning for a quick look round.Other than the usual suspects it was pretty quiet with a lone Common Sandpiper and a very young Little Ringed Plover being the better birds on view.

On the way back to the car park we had a quick look through the causeway screens and spotted a juvenile Water Rail perched on the reeds.I must confess I was not sure what it was at first but still rattled off a few shots before it shot off.

At the same spot a Sedge Warbler came up for some close ups.
