Baillon's Crake - again!
Would you believe it, after spening 13 hours trying to catch up with the extremely elusive Baillon's Crake at Rainham Marshes RSPB, I popped back late morning today, and saw it within 10 minutes of arriving. I was very lucky as it had not been seen all morning and when someone called it I put my scope up and was right on it. I managed to get 2 or 3 others to connect via my scope before it slinked off again out of view. It wasn't seen again in the next 2 hours I spent in the hide. About 80% of the people in the hide did not see it! I know how they felt!
