CommentAdult, sexes alike, with longer legs and toes than other small crakes. The first bird of the morning just after 6.00 am. The sun was yet to come over the hill so the birds were in shade and they were continually moving while the boat drifted past. I desperately wanted a shot with eye contact but the bird was intent on feeding and ignored us.
