Watching Skylarks at Jack’s Drove, Tealham Moor early this morning and all of a sudden the cows flushed 7 Common Snipe, they took off but landed only 50 metres away in the same field. I waited for them to be flushed again in readiness for a flight shot and then different cows in the other direction flushed 3 more. This time one of them landed on a gate post where he stood for a few minutes. I managed to get some photo’s. I saw 10 for sure but could hear others calling/drumming. A few photo’s below.
