Haven't seen our LLTs for a lot more than a month, then we had this little poppet arrive:
It rather overshadowed our robinette hopping around on the ground.
In reply to IanMSpencer:
Lovely Ian. Young LTT's are very appealing as is the Robinette.
A very long distant shot of a young Common Crane with its parent at Slimbridge. Good to see at least one has survived although I was told there were two. Didn't see both though.

He came swooping in on those massive wings, then he hovered for a bit before landing for a photoshoot. :-)

Brilliant photos Terry, I've never seen a Water Rail youngster before so wonderful to see what they look like.

Thanks Hazel, caused a bit of excitement among some of the local birders, seems that I've now officially confirmed the 3rd year of breeding Water Rail at Rainton Meadows. :-)

Great set Terry. The Water Rail chicck is really special. So different from how they turn out as adults.
