Common snipe it is indeed! One of those days when loads were out there, but it was really hard to see them!��

That was from the Minsmere reference - saw 2 Jacks there from North Hide a couple of weeks back. Luckily the views were (slightly) better than the photo!

People in the hide said they could see a Jack snipe, but I could not claim I did! All the ones I could see looked common to me - still love them though!

Well first, I tried playing "spot the bird" - only problem I can't find one

Unless at top edge centre, those are two legs - so I'll say Black-tailed Godwit.
