Hi All,
I visit the Crace Pond or Wetland several times a week since it opened a bit over a year ago. Crakes arrived there quite early on in the populating of the new wetland. All three Crakes have been seen by me and others - Baillon's, Spotless and Spotted. Of these only the Spotted appears to be a permanent resident or it may be that the other two are more timid. There were at least three Spotted Crakes there all winter and I suspect that two are now a breeding pair. There is no absolute evidence yet but they remain together and dart away regularly into the same tunnel in the reeds. If this is so, it will be the first breeding record for some time.
Cheers John
