100% snipe,if you look at the stripes on the head you will see that they go front to back,on a woodcock they go from one side to the other,

Going by the identification pics also posted on the previous thread it's obviously a snipe. Just look at the streaks around the head.

 

EDIT: As above.

The saddest thing about that photograph is not the fact that he thought it was a woodcock, but that he actually took his DPM trousers off and laid them on the ground to take the photo. :blush:

Snipe.

 

 

And it's rather worrying for those of you that can't tell the difference as you stand little hope of distinguishing between a snipe and a jack snipe!

Dont take this the wrong way but if you were not sure what it was you shouldnt have shot it. If it had turned out to be a sandpiper or plover you would be in deep **** by now.

 

Personally and its only my opinion of course so dont get agitated.... I cannot see the point in shooting either snipe or woodcock, numbers of which are both nationally declining.

 

I dont suppose its even a mouthful.

Yes this is only your opinion. I have seen more woodcock this year than in quite a few years, so until someone tells me it is against the law to shoot them or I notice a decline in their numbers I will keep shooting them.
