With the weather forecast not particularly good, we decided to head to North Cave Wetlands for the spotted crake. It showed straight away, but very distant. As usual, it had a water rail for company. It's a pity the weather wasn't on our side as it rained the whole time we were there. Have great praise for North Cave Wetlands that is managed superbly with perfectly placed hides that are full of information. An excellent bird feeding station, a substantial car park and a good path network that covers the whole site. You have got it spot on !
