They are stunning with that huge liquid eye but its something i do only a couple of times a year. Ive stood by a fire check in a plantation in the Western Isles at dusk and seen them pour out in huge numbers. Once had a party of German guns shooting and there wasnt a sound at all, no gun shots, nothing. Went to see what was happening and asked if they hadnt seen any birds. "No only large bats" came the reply :doh:

I love the woodcock shooting & aim to get at least 1 for my season. There is a few just come in this week saw a few today beating so it must be the start of them. Here is a pic of 3 i got in 1 drive last year at end of season but still no right & left yet.
