Where to see Corncrakes in this area

Corncrakes don't breed in this area, but you ocassionally see them as they migrate back to their winter homes East Africa. This one was on Lundy for a couple of weeks in September 2003. It was worth getting up at 7am to see it preening in the low morning sunlight.
