Jack Snipe - Lymnocryptes minimus

This is the first time, lifer, I have seen it. It was a long off, but, at least you can see it.
Photographed at Martin Smith Hide, Slimbridge WWT, Gloucestershire, GB.

  12. Hi Bob,
    Super set of images and well done with seeing this bird.
    We had one a few weeks ago from Crake Hide at Rutland but it wouldn't come out of the reeds for me.
    All the best, John

    3. Hi Bob,
      They are showing off, brilliant news however. I visited Eyebrook this afternoon to see some Whooper swans but they had gone by the time I arrived.

    4. I'm sorry John, the Whooper Swan is a great news, but, they were gone, sorry.

  18. Looks good and it forever amazes me how birds and animals fit into their surroundings so well - but that's how it's supposed to be..well done to capture and show us.

  19. I'm very envious, Bob. It's been a few years since I've seen one of these. Well done for seeing it and capturing it so beautifully with your camera! My very best wishes - - - Richard
