Baillon's: the movie


This elusive Baillon's Crake was found on 7 September but has been absent for long periods and has proved very difficult to see. A juvenile, it follows a summer in which an unprecedented nine singing males were located on territory in Britain - conceivably, it may therefore be British bred. The two previous London records of this vagrant both date from the late 19th century.

  1. As near as I am probably going to get on this one having seen the adult at Grove Ferry some years back. A nice Chang to see a video of it though.
