Thread: woodcock chick

    woodcock chick

    Was out with the dog yesterday and had a woodcock fly up right in front of me, I immediately pulled back the dog and just as well as three little chicks were right in front of us.

    I took a quick pic and then turned back walking around the area to leave them in peace, the mother was doing the broken wing dance about 15-20 meters away.

    Lovely sight. Not many people in Britain would have been lucky enough to see this, as most fly back to you in spring to breed.

    Thanks all, it was great to see.

    I've found the chicks a couple of times now whilst out hiking.
