Mon 22 Jan – PS: things that go "squelch" in the night...

In a further bulletin from the Misty Isle, Dean says of last night, Monday 22 Jan:

"As it was a relatively calm night here I went for a late night jaunt through the fields to look for feeding birds. Altogether I saw 3 Woodcock, 8 Snipe, a single Jack Snipe next to Quarter Wall Pond, a roosting Mallard in Tillage Field and a rabbit! The first I’ve seen in quite a while."

Just goes to show what's there for the finding if the lure of a muddy field on a damp January night exceeds the lure of a warm living room!
