    Saw one solitary woodcock when out with Malc last weekend in deepest, warmest Sussex.
    Just the one, but good to see it any way.
    I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, but it was only some fecker with a torch bringing me more work

    Was sat in a highseat in Warwickshire last weekend, I thought a leaf had fallen to the floor that I saw in my peripheral vision. When I had a look through the bins, it was a woodcock. Not 5 foot from the foot of the seat. I turned to my mate, and whispered what I had seen. He moved to try and see it and it took off.

    This is the first woodcock I have ever seen on the ground. Are some woodcock not indigenous?

    I can't believe how many snipe are behind my house at present. The chesapeakes get royaly pissed off when i walk up there without a gun.

    Some woodcock never return and stay here for good. I have seen loads get up at the last minute whilst out lamping in the summer. Sometimes they fly and land a few feet and i have picked them up when they were frozen by the lights of my Landie. The smell of them is everything air-freshener companies have been trying to replicate for years.

    Ross, I am pretty sure you are right.
    Saw my first one this year Monday last week.
