Otmoor Corncrake

The last Corncrake to be heard and of course never seen on the moor, was first found on the 30th May 1999. It called for a couple of weeks, stopped calling and then started again until the 7th July. It was said that this behaviour was that of a breeding bird but no confirmation was possible.
Thanks to badger and Gnome for the audio visual. It has been calling much nearer to the bridleway than the 1999 bird.
