Corncrake at the edge of a field Corncrake at the edge of a field

Corncrakes are related to moorhens, coots and rails but differ from most members of the family because they live on dry land. They are very secretive, spending most of their time hidden in tall vegetation, their presence only betrayed by their rasping call. In flight their bright chestnut wings and trailing legs are unmistakable. Best looked and listened for on the Western Isles. RSPB reserves at Balranald and Coll provide some of the best opportunities. Arrives from mid-April and leaves again in August and September. Best located by call which can be heard both day and night.
