The Corncrake comes to Ireland at the end of April. She lives in the thick grass. She is to be heard in the evening and at night.She keeps calling until late June. She is too weak to fly when she comes to Ireland. Then after a bit she gets stronger and is able to fly farther.They make their nests in the (-) or in thick grass. They lay up to about a dozen eggs.Then they nearly all go away in August. Sometimes later than that you would see one.
