Remarks :I was digging my Hard Drive for old images, when I found out this image taken on 06/12/2013. Had always thought it as Baillon's Crake. But the the red base to the bill is apparent here which is so diagnostic of Little Crake. This may well be the 1st photographic record of the Little Crake from India. - PJS
