On Time

On the 11th October I found my first Winter visitors in the form of 3 Jack Snipe feeding in a local bog. Ironically, without the help of an east wind, these birds had arrived only one day later than they did last year! Migration is amazing when you think that these tiny Snipe had left a bog in Lapland to spend winter in a Lancashire bog and their timing was only one day different. The odds are that these are the very same birds that made the journey there and back last year. www.facebook.com/gordonyateswildlife
