Arrived at Thorpe Hide yesterday around 12pm and immediately heard 3 buff-banded rails calling. I only saw one, but what a corker. It ran across the pools towards one of the other calling birds, skulked about for a few minutes and then disappeared.

Great photos and even better to find out there is more than a single bird there.
