Woodcocks everywhere!

The cold spell has given people a chance of seeing Woodcock at close quarters in the Llandudno area. Here is a video of one I saw at Glanwydden last week.

Jack Snipe at Penrhyn Beach

An extremely confiding Jack Snipe has been present below the Littel Orme at Penrhyn Bay this week allowing probably my best ever views of the species. Here are a selection of pictures I took.
