A Snipe

I've never read or seen anything about the evolution of different species of birds but that snipe has all the equipment for mudflats , fabulous shot Keith .

We regularly hear them and occasionally disturb them as we walk around our back garden/field. They produce the most eerie noise - known as "winnowing" or "drumming" - during their courtship display - quite disconcerting on a quiet evening!
