Saw one solitary woodcock when out with Malc last weekend in deepest, warmest Sussex.
Just the one, but good to see it any way.

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?

Cheers

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.
