Even more Woodcock!

Following on from the rush of Woodcock reports two weeks ago, they've just kept coming in! Today I heard of one German-ringed and two French-ringed birds being found. We also checked the number of birds found with foreign rings and reported online (at www.ring.ac) and found another three from France and birds from Sweden, Belgium (the tenth ever) and Lithuania (only the second ever)!

The most reports we've had in one year was 14 in 1969, so this winter's count of 12 (so far) is quite impressive!
