Moorhens on Barmy Drain

8 Aug

I post this because it’s the first time I’ve managed to get a moorhen in focus in years of trying.  These birds are fairly common, not particularly shy and hardly quick moving; don’t quite know what my problem was … So, anyway, this little group were on Barmston Drain and I’m pretty sure this is a second brood of the year as another much bigger juvenile was hanging around.
