Author's notes

An unexpected sight (apologies for the poor quality photos I wasn't prepared for this). A Dusky Moorhen with a Redfin fish. It was being chased by another bird and my camera wasn't set right. I had thought they were vegetarian. This was just after I'd photographed a Little Pied Cormorant, also with a Redfin fish.
