Moorhens

A family of moorhens have been living in the back field for some time now and every so often I get a glimpse of one of these lovely black birds. They are very quick birds with extremely good hearing and my approach usually sends them running or flying away.

On Sunday I could see three of the moorhens near the back field and I luckily had my camera so managed to catch two of the birds on camera. I’m afraid it’s not the best photo but at least it’s evidence that they are inhabiting our land.

What unusual birds have you spotted in and around your garden?
