Day 6

Brief report today as most of it was travelling to Teeside and back for an appointment with my hip specialist...ongoing!

I got back to the Patch around 4 and decided to visit Canal Scrape hide, hopefully for a peep at a Jack Snipe...or 2.

There were a few people in the hide when I opened the door and I could see one of them pointing down to the waters edge? I'll be honest, it took me a good 5 minutes before I picked up the diagnostic bobbing action of a Jack Snipe (P.151, S.114).

There it is!

Striking back pattern
Neither bird fully left the cover of the reeds but they're always great entertainment...

That's it!
