About

Corncrakes are rarely seen but their rasping calls are famed for keeping crofters awake through the night! They tend to spend most of their time in tall vegetation such as Iris beds or arable crops in Machair areas.

Corncrakes are most often seen when they arrive on their breeding grounds in late April.
