Crake-fest for dinner!

A Trip to the Nene Washes Last night produced at least 7 male Calling Corncrake from the re-introduction programme and was my first encounter with this species since 1990 when me and H jammed in on one on porth hellick (st mary's scillies) back in the day!

Then we took the short trip to welches dam where Spotted Crake was calling amongst the back drop of hooting Tawny Owls to end off a cracking evenings birding.
