Shelf Moor Trailer Park fields

   Snipe, distant and last light.




With early darkness I just found time to get down to the Shelf Moor trailer park to wait for the Snipe coming in to roost in the juncus field.
After a wait and the worry of running out of light I thought I must have missed them and they were already down. Not wanting to disturb them in the field I was calling it a do when 3 came over circling the field before dropping in. These were followed by another 6 all in to roost from Shibden area.
Hopefully the numbers will build over the next month as long as they don,t deserte the area like last year.
The record count here was 48 on 8/12/2013.
