Thread: Snipe

  1. #1


    Out walking the dogs this evening they put up a snipe, lovely to see it fly, any one else seen any yet. Is it early for them? Cheers Dan

    Saw a few in Argyll last week on the hill. A fine Black cock too. Lovely plumage.

    some landed on shetland with the last moon ,and have now moved on ,this moon will proberly see a lot more fly in then olso move on it is November before they start to stay on the isles with us. The resident Snipe did manage to rear there broods some managed two , ,some years the thin worm holding ground dries out and even the marshy areas dry out making life hard for them and we often heard them drumming away well into july ,but this spring and early summer were very wet and must have helped them

    Little too early for snipe round here, another month and it will be about the right time.

    Put about a dozen up last Saturday, and managed 2 for 4 shots. The marshy ground I walk over isn't very wet yet and we havn't had a decent cold snap either. The marsh on a friends pheasant shoot yielded about 30 for 7 shot on the same day.
