Staying close to home, I tried a couple of rough rushy fields which ive never previously visited.
Initially I wasn't expecting much as a Harris Hawk caused a nuisance overhead.
Thankfully it moved off & I hit on with 4 Jack Snipe, 6 Commons & a pair of Woodcock sitting together out of the wind under bramble & thorn scrub.
This puts my winter total up to 92 birds found, all bar 5 in County Durham.
Hopefully get the ton-up before the Spring migrants arrive.....
