LITTLE CRAKE at Minsmere - MEGA!!!!

Today Dad and I went to see Suffolk's 3rd Little Crake, which was at Minsmere. It was another MEGA rarity, so it was a must see. We arrived at Minsmere at about 9:45am, and headed straight for Bittern Hide. The hide was packed full of birders, but we managed to find a little space and squeeze in.

It didn't take long for the Little Crake to show, and boy did it! It showed really well, walking about infront of the hide, but still a bit distant, and plus the sun was right in your face, so taking pictures was always going to be bad. Here are some of the best and a terrible video.

We also got a distant Stonechat at the Sluice but nothing else for the rest of the day.

Happy Birding!
