    woodcock

    Anybody seeing many? A few on the ground round my area but not in massive numbers but I reckon this harder weather this week and the full moon will make all the difference.

    Its a clear moonlit night here tonight with a good frost so I think this'll get em moving. I've not had a chance to flight them in the morning yet, but apparently some good numbers were seen this morning, although not a lot could be said about the number shot, lol . That's what makes them so magical. I picked up a brace at the weekend walking up with the dog, and seen about ten all told in less than a couple hours (I wont say how many I missed ).

    Woodcock are now showing up on our shoot in Yorkshire.
    I went on our annual trip to Scotland (Ross-shire) in mid November, there were more woodcock this year than I have been seen for a good few years.

    Reasonable amounts less perhaps than previous years, will see what this months moon brings.

    We've seen quite a few recently with the thermal imager and NV when we've been out foxing.

    I have one wood where there are quite a few, I tend to leave them alone, as I don't want to spook the deer to often.
    The syndicate ground I belong to often has them so I shoot at them on that.

    Thermal is excellent tool for spotting them, I have seen quite a few on waterlogged stubbles, not many last night which was a surprise as cold and v bright and NW wind.
