Introduction
It is a medium-sized crake with buff- or grey-streaked brownish-black upperparts, chestnut markings on the wings, and blue-grey underparts with rust-colored and white bars on the flanks and undertail. The strong bill is flesh-toned, the iris is pale brown, and the legs and feet are pale grey. Juveniles are similar in plumage to adults, and downy chicks are black, as with all rails.
The corncrake is a medium-sized rail, 27-30 cm (11-12 in) long with a wingspan of 42-53 cm (17-21 in). Males weigh 165 g (5.8 oz) on average and females 145 g (5.1 oz). The adult male has the crown of its head and all of its upperparts brown-black in colour, streaked with buff or grey.
This bird occupies 4.2-4.9 ha (10-12 acres) at one time, although the total area used may be double that, since an individual may move locally due to flooding, plant growth, or grass cutting.

Lowlands.
