Crepuscular

One bird that rarely shows in bright sunshine is the Water Rail. Always hidden; the books use the word crepuscular, and always in the half light of a secluded pool or corner. This one we photographed in Scotland recently. Although he was initially quite wary he succumbed and came out to feed in the open eventually.

    Wow! From what I know a rare bird.

      Hi Victor – I don’t think we could say a Water Rail is rare (maybe scarce) but for the number of times we get a really good view of one they might as well be!
