Woodcock

A Woodcock yesterday, flushed by Paul adjacent to woodland 300m east of the railway bridge at Glynde, south of the Reach.

Woodcocks don’t seem to like our damp and chalky area very much – this is the first I’ve heard of in years. They’re not the biggest show-offs though, so maybe a few spend the winter in some of the less-walked woodland.

Also a couple of Common Snipe seen here.

  1. You may be interested to know in that case that last winter my dad saw one on the Golf Course on the downs just North of Seaford, after the heavy snowfall in early February, when it had presumably been forced out of cover to look for food.
