Spotted Crake - Churchill, East Down

While out observing the 'pink super moon' last night from 2215 to 2235 a Spotted Crake was very clearly audible and not too distant, presumably in the bottom of the valley in front of the house in wet/marshy streamside habitat.

No doubt a singing migrant and unlikely to hang around but I will listen out later and get a recording if still present and calling.
