Water Rail

Rallus Aquaticus.

In Cyprus this is a fairly common winter visitor and passage migrant. However, it is not easily seen by the inexperienced birdwatcher.

This one was at Zakaki Marsh and gave me some brief views in the open allowing for me to take a few so-so shots while it was moving quickly.
