What bird is this?

Recommended Posts

It flies like a snipe but it’s a bit bigger and there are about 6 on this field all close together in a flock?

Not very good pictures. If they are snipe I’ve never seen a group together

Wow thanks, be farming 35yrs and never seen them before. The last 2 yrs we have left a 2ac nesting plot for them. Thought the badgers and foxes would mop them up.

Whereabouts are you?

Leaving a plot for Golden Plover in lowland UK is pointless as they only nest in upland places like the Pennines. 

You may though be rewarded by other ground nesting birds like Lapwings.

Cambridge do not really upland. More flat land

Would you like any air rifle pest control? Barns. Open field work. 😉

Two for one last season! They are pretty quick.
