Skys the limit.......

The sky certainly was the limit this evening, sadly in the shape of one Skylark!

I took a trip up to one of my 'Woodcock sites' near Llanerfyl this evening to see if any Golden Plovers had returned (last year 60+ were present through October to early December). Sadly none have arrived as yet, but I did see 15-20 snipe (2 of which I tickled with the net arghhh!!) and 1 Skylark which I did manage to catch.

Last autumn/winter this site proved to be very productive, with catches of:

Golden Plover - 13
Lapwing - 1
Woodcock - 4 (+1)
Snipe - 4
Jack Snipe - 1
Skylark - 2
Fieldfare - 4
Redwing - 2

Lets hope for another productive season.
