SPOTTED CRAKE // PORZANA PORZANA (22cm)

SPOTTED  CRAKE //  PORZANA  PORZANA  (22cm)

GAMBIA TOUR 2018.
=================
RARE BEAUTY, according to the Gambian and Senegal bird book, no recorded sightings in the Gambia, so Bob and me are laying claim to this find !!! And I have not seen one in the U.K as also very Rare.
Sitting very patiently, for maybe a swamphen or moorhen, to briefly show its self from the reeds, we could hear a sound like dripping water, quip-quip-quip, then movement, and after a while it put in a appearance, then fully. Just snapped away. New it was a crake, but their are four to chose from. It has been officially identified as a spotted crake , they are very shy and secretive.
========================
THANK YOU for your continued support, have now finished processing all the images, so more time for comments and British birds. Please stay safe and God bless………..Tomx.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++
We do not use Bird Guides , as its far more rewarding to try and find them yourself, we can spend hours with just one bird.
