You wait all day for a bus....

You know that old saying, 'You wait all day for a bus, then two come along at once'? I've found that with birding.
A few years ago we were hunting for Bitterns, well not actually hunting, but you know on the look out. And after we finally saw our first one, after nearly a year of looking and hoping, we saw loads!
Its been like that with our Water Rail!
On Sunday, 25th we went back to Rainham Marshes and we saw ourselves another 2! One after staking out some reeds for about 5 minutes and he dashed out in to the open and back in to the reeds like a shot and another who was feeding pretty opening underneath a tree near the board walk.
