dusky moorhen

The Dusky Moorhen is a brown gallinule like the Eurasian Coot of the previous post. It is easily recognisable by the red frontal shield and thin bill with yellow tip. It usually stays a bit closer to cover than the Eurasian Coot and this one favoured grazing amoung the water lillies floating on the Japanese lake at my local botanical gardens.
