Little Crake - A Bucks First!

This Little Crake was found on 6th November at Linford Reserve by photographer Ken Sargent. Kent sent a photograph to the County Recorder who confirmed it as a Little Crake, a first record for the county! As it was too late to visit that day, plans were put in place to allow public access on 7th and hopefully subsequent days.

Local permit holders put out news and access details on social media and manned the gate, car park and hide. This allowed quite a few local and birders from further afield to visit the site.
The bird was relocated at 06:50 on 7th Nov.

The bird frequented a reed bed and was hidden from view for most of the time.
Views like this were few.

Temporary access was granted for a £5 donation on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. However please check social media or the bird information services for the latest situation. Note that the site is not open 24 hours a day and normally a permit is required for access. An annual permit can be purchased for £20 at :-https://theparkstrust.digitickets.co.uk/category/13969.
