The corncrake is a difficult bird to see. You can hear the males calling, but, they hide in patches of flag iris.
I saw this one on the Isle of Coll. It was nesting, not in the flag iris, but, in a patch of rhubarb, on the edge of the village. Coll is an RSPB reserve which was bought specifically to conserve corncrakes.
