Snipe in Fags Wood

Once a hunting ground for Nightjars, now an unsightly scrap yard plus chicken sheds operation, the field opposite the Fags Wood car park has seen better days. However, some birds have no taste, and the mud tracks within the field offer temporary refuge for Snipe. I flushed seven of them cycling past the car park entrance on Sunday morning presumably many more were in the field.

Apart from that, there's very little to report from the Orlestone wood complex. Just the occasional Buzzard brightened up our weekend walks.
