Mors: Woodcock

Apparently Woodcock is rarely active in daytime. I suspect this unfortunate bird is also rarley active at dusk either...

Found this beauty on the roadside in Cramlington this afternoon - that's two on the patch in two days... although this will not count for my "bike" list.

The short trip out took me along the eastern stretch of the Horton Burn - no kingfisher/grey wagtail nor dipper, but six mallard remain.

West Hartford provided two stonechat, 2 stock dove and six reed bunting. The pools are 95%+ frozen still, so a lone black headed gull was all that was present on the ice. No shorties still...
