Observation details

First observation was the day prior, 29 November 2013. I returned to document the record with photos, attached below. By no means beautiful, but they do the job - all were taken with Nikon SLR and 300 mm f4 lens, images cropped. Again, the bird was very small, a bit smaller than the Common Moorhens sharing the pond with it. The photos don't do the best job with the bill, which again was dark on top, and lighter / horn colored blow, yellow at the base / gape.
