A Very Close Water Rail

We went for a walk to Oulton Broad this afternoon in the glorious sunshine. A couple of families were feeding the ducks and when we went to have a look we were amazed to see a Water Rail amongst them, feeding in the open. These birds are notoriously shy and I usually only catch glimpses of them amongst the reeds.

It was a wonderful, unexpected treat to be able to photograph one out in the open, 2-3 metres away in superb light.

E-M1 and 75-300 II.
