It's hard being a small wader!

I went up to Filey Country Park yesterday as 11 Woodcock had been spotted a few days before.

I did see a couple of Woodcock flying and plenty of gulls.

Waders were feeding on the grass in the centre of the park, although there was a good couple of inches covering of snow. The pictures depict the probing where the grass is visible.

Cold, hard work indeed. I love this small wader although common and in its winter plumage, they look so small alongside the Oystercatchers.

Thinking about it.

 Not too sure.

Why not!
