Woodcock tracking

The season has pretty nuch come to an end for now and the majority of Woodcocks are travelling back to their breeding grounds. Some of which will be Eastern European countries. Chris Bridge managed to successfully 'lamp', catch and ring 10 Woodcock in the Llandudno area. I've come across an excellent site whereby a project has been set up across the UK to track Woodcocks.

One of the Woodcocks caught in Llandudno


  1. it maybe in the hand but its a stunning image - lovely bird

  2. Trying to capture an image of these on the ground is near extremely difficult. Was a fantastic opportunity to get so close to such a stunning bird though. Thanks.
