Corncrake, historical artwork

Corncrake. Historical artwork of a corncrake, or landrail (Crex crex). This bird differs from its relatives the coot, moorhen and rail in that it does not live in water. Instead it inhabits grasslands throughout much of Europe and Africa. It is a migrant, breeding in Europe and Asia and wintering in Africa and the Mediterranean region. The advent of mechanised agriculture greatly reduced its numbers, as it nests in fields and meadows, and farm machines destroy its nests and eggs. It feeds on seeds and insects, and may reach a length of up to 30 centimetres. Its scientific name is taken from its harsh "crex crex" call. Artwork drawn by Archibald Thorburn (1860-1935)
