Nick rang me this afternoon with the news of a Jack Snipe over him at Heath Hill Road, a nice record that. As we we chatting, I was in the front room with the family, a Woodcock flew across just over the house tops and heading towards Wheatley. I guess it must have been disturbed somewhere nearby.
Strange that we both managed to see unusual waders within a few minutes of each other. Makes you wonder if this was part of a bigger movement of birds as the cold spell eased?
