Jack Snipes II

Another superb few days. With the big freeze looking as though its going to weaken, I decided to spend as much time as possible working at the hides with the Jack Snipes - which have now increased to five birds!



























Common Snipes were also giving some nice opportunities...





As was our 'resident' Robin...





And a very confiding Lapwing...



And Redshank...



And I also managed some time for some landscape photography...

Once again some really lovely photo's
Hugh. Really good for id purposes -I was showing my learning birder friend the first "Jack Snipe" photos the other day when we went through her photos taken at Barnes last week - she managed some Common Snipe (from far too far away!) accidently - but I had also pointed some out to her from the hide...I had explained what Jack Snipe looked like -but better than Collins were your photos on Thursday!
So she will be text to look here again!

Thanks Corinna - glad they have been of use. I've just about got feeling back in my toes - it was freezing in that hide...

Hi Hugh,
Wow what a fantastic post... The sharpness and the details of these shots are awesome. I love the redshank and the robin shots a lot. They are splendid! You got them well!
