Looking for Jack Snipe

Home Looking for Jack Snipe

On the 8th May 2017…

The weather was still pretty windy and cold this weekend, however the nature reserves at Druridge Bay were still rich in birds.

I hoped to catch up with a Jack Snipe or a Whimbrel; both of which had been recorded at Druridge Pools over the past week. Neither put in an appearance, however I was rewarded with great views of two very bright Yellow Wagtails.

A Grey Heron, a Pied Wagtail and a few Lapwing also came pretty close, appearing to take an interest in my bird watching nearby.

I guess I couldn’t complain, as my birding has been pretty rewarding at Druridge Bay the last few months. Maybe I will catch up with a Jack Snipe next time!
