Monday, 1.30pm. Water rail poked its head out of the reeds.
How much longer do you think it will stay?

I would think that it will probably move on in early March unless we have a really bad cold snap. You never know it might stay. We intend to leave a narrow strip of water along the ditch this year. Not specifically for the rail, but to allow birds to have a sheltered drinking area.
