Watch the birdie

This beautiful bird was caught during our recent bird ringing session, this is a Snipe of which we have several resident on site at the moment. A very secretive bird which is, although not uncommon, is not seen very often.

Unfortunately we also discovered a dead Woodcock in the reedbed, no signs of trauma so not sure what the cause of death was. Another magnificent bird with stunning plumage.
