Dazzling

I went out dazzling again tonight to a site near where I live in Carmarthenshire. I planned tonight because the wind was forecast to be strong and with chances of rain. This would put the odds in my favour, reducing the chances of the Woodcock hearing me stealthily walking around. As it happened the weather improved, it was calm with plenty of stars about.
I never spotted a Woodcock all evening but did see a Snipe which flew off before I got anywhere near it. The only bird of the evening was this Meadow Pipit.




The hind claw was 12mm aged 3 with a wing length of 83mm and a weight of 22.3 grams. A few pictures and it flew off into the night.
