This one had a funny story connected to it. I was out with a friend this morning and while driving down the road I just happened to mention that I quite often see Wilson’s Snipe sitting on the old farm fence posts. He immediately pointed to the right and said " You mean like that one" And low and behold there was this amazing bird. We stopped and got some great shots. It was extremely co-operative.
