Water Rails are shy birds, and I was delighted to see one emerge from the reedbeds and cautiously dig around for breakfast… Not the first time of seeing for me, but this time it came right out and had a swim in the very flooded wetlands around Slimbridge WWT. It looks very diffferent in swim mode, and I was glad I had the longer lens with me (Sony 200-600 GM, named ‘The Hubble’).
All the shots here are taken with Sony A7R4 at

during a brief sunny interlude in early January.
