Jack Snipe at Rye Meads

We took the short local drive out to Rye Meads RSPB today and managed to find a Jack Snipe as we looked out from Gadwall hide helped in no small way by the local who gave us very good instructions as to the birds location. The Jims managed another year tick with two Green Sandpipers but otherwise things were very quiet on the reserve. As we got back to the visitor centre the staff had managed to find the bobbing bird on the camera and had it showing on the big screen.

The Jack Snipe (arrow to indicate position.....it looked better in the scope and even better on the TV)
