    If you are really into Woodcock, they are as common as sparrows on Arran.

    Not just Arran but the west coast in general, may be odd ones arrive this month but don't expect to see any great number until next months full moon.

    We need a bit of hard weather to bring them down to the Westcountry, won't be here in any numbers till later in the year.

    Shouldnt be long but certainly a nice frost or two will no doubt see them arriving.
    Fantastic little birds and always a joy to see. Can remember seeing one ' square up ' to Sparrow Hawk that had taken a pass at it a miniature Black Cock, wings spread and rotating round as the hawk tried to move in. Gave up in the end a both flew off. Missed the deer I was going for while watching it !!!!

    Flushed 2 yesterday while beating but they are more likely resident we get a few that seem to stay every year, next moon and a bit of hard weather before we see good numbers. Last year was a bumper in my neck of the woods.
