I owe Martin one for letting me ring this woodcock. It is thanks to him that the bird was caught in the first place. I tried repaying it with a trip to a long eared owl nest just over a week ago but sadly they'd vacated - we can't be sure but I think they were early. There's always next year :o)

A very cold morning but fantastic bird (the cold suddenly didn't matter!).

A second woodcock put a large hole in a net borrowed from Errol.

Oh, and the previous Woodcock caught in Bedfordshire was 27 years ago.
