Description

Moorhens are mostly black and brown, with short rounded wings. They tend to be weak fliers but have very strong legs and long toes well adapted to walking on soft or uneven surfaces. They are omnivores, eating plants, small rodents, amphibians and eggs. They can be aggressively territorial during breeding season, but otherwise are found in large flocks in shallow lakes.

Price is per week of loan.
