Spotted Crake...

Dave Helliar managed to catch up with a rather elusive Spotted Crake that was at Black Hole Marsh earlier in the week. Always fantastic birds to see. When this one finally showed, it at least showed well:

Almost as good were 3 wood sandpipers found by Dave at Chard Res, a new site record!
