This is what Trevor wrote about the Little Crake.
For those that don’t know too much about this bird, it occurs in Europe, mainly in the east of the continent and also just gets into western Asia. It migrates to winter in northern Africa, generally only coming as far south as Ethiopia, although there are the odd records further south in Kenya. This is obviously a case of reverse migration where the bird has got it’s “built in GPS” totally messed up and, instead of heading north back to Eurasia, it has turned 180 degrees and headed due south! This often happens at this time of the year and is one of the most exciting times for rarities, particularly in the Western Cape.
