Wilson's Snipe

Wilson's Snipe

Gallinago delicata

Record footage of the juv-1W bird that was originally found by James Lidster on October 11 2007 at St.Mary's, Scilly- at the time, only the second record for Britain. Due to intensive observation of this bird and other snipe on site, I was fortunate in finding a further three delicata. Although this footage is rather poor in quality (filmed using a compact digital camera through my telescope) it does show the important underwing features quite well.
The bird was seen at least until April 16th 2008.
It was filmed by Ashley Fisher on November 30th 2007.
