Snipe and Water Rail by the Kingfisher Hide at Attenborough Nature Reserve

This is one of the close up shots of the snipe I took a few days ago. I have had to tweak it a bit as there was an annoying grass stem in the foreground. See if you can spot the join

This water rail seems to be a regular performer in front of the hide which is just as well because the feeders, that were such an attraction to so many birds, like tree sparrows and finches, have been removed to help control the huge number of brown rats congregating under them.
