Snipe - Titchwell

I love to see the Snipe, and was treated to a ridiculously close encounter from one of the hides at Titchwell last week. Almost oblivious to my presence but only 10 feet away and eventually down to 6 feet at most. It put on a lovely display for me, preening, cleaning and skulking in the stubby reed bed. I could have stayed all day watching but apparently there are other birds to see at Titchwell too.





Just got a little itch here.

  2. Must be a good hide. It was completely unaware of being watched. Great photos as always.
