Jack Snipe

 Early this morning I went over to have a look around the Exminster Marshes and I started at the north end and walked all around the sodden fields and was rewarded with my 1st Jack Snipe of the year as it flew from in front of me and flew a short distance before dropping into cover again .

 I then got a message telling me that there was a drake Red-Crested Pochard showing on the main reservoir , so I walked down and was lucky to find the finder still there and he soon got me onto the bird . It stayed there for a while giving distant views before flying off . But lucky enough it was later found on the canal and showed very well .
