This is some video of the recent Jack Snipe that spent a few days in front of the hide at Cresswell Pond ,it's three short clips merged into one as it spent most of the time with head tucked in , one clip had some nice background calls of Redshank and lapwings but then voices spoil it so I have taken all the sound off . Another great opportunity to see one of these cracking little birds , it bobs occasionally which is most curious to see it's almost an innate action , the usual following of birders keen to see it , but unable too despite the most detailed directions given and the fact it was only about a foot away from a large square block of wood and a purple wrapper on the other side ? surprised it did not fly off given the noise emanating from the hide .
A Challenge Too Far?
