Keep your eyes peeled for Woodcock at the moment. They usually arrive at this time of year during the full moon and yesterday I flushed woodcock on two separate occasions. One just alongside Barrie and Cathy's garden and the other on the Whitehills Road near the first collection of trees.
Very much a woodland bird they seek out damp muddy ground and flit away acrobatically when disturbed.

What a great picture of a Woodcock.  I've also put up a  Woodcock on my last 3 walks  end January, begiinning of February) , up by Whitehills and Pitmiddle. Some of these birds may be European migrants.
