“I was out watching insects about 1 km form my home when I spotted 4 snipe. I changed cameras and when to investigate.
“For some reason this Slaty-breasted Rail (Gallirallus striatus gularis) gave a loud shriek and flew towards me and into the Imperata cylindrical (lalang) undergrowth.
“Managed some quick images of the bird in flight. I suspect it was nesting.”
