Secretive and shy Water Rail

This secretive bird is often seen walking slowly in shallow water, sometimes under cover, or along the edge of aquatic vegetation, searching for food.
Water Rail feeds on small fish, molluscs and insects. Its slim body allows easier creeping through aquatic plants. It lives in marshes and reedbeds. We can hear its pig-like calls rising from the reeds.
These pictures show the Water rail in its feeding behaviour, searching for aquatic preys.
The first pictures show an adult feeding its chicks.
