A bit later in the day I noticed a couple of brown blobs on the town centre play park which backs onto the southern end of Seaton Marshes. I had my suspicions as to what they were, so ventured a bit nearer and scoped them. I was pleased to see that they were indeed what I'd suspected. Woodcock. One of my favourites, though don't ask me why because I don't know. It's just 'something about them'. I've never witnessed any roding yet, I must rectify the situation this year.
The brown blobs....
... were two Woodcock. There are two, one of them is to the left of the sweet wrapper by the fence.
And here it is. I didn't approach any closer to take this photo I just used the zoom on the scope, it doesn't always work but it did today! :-)
