|First year male lapwing|
In the third field the lamp picked up a Woodcock. The bird was perhaps a little too alert and despite Lukes careful approach it shot off just a fraction of a second before the net dropped down onto it. The bird flew off into the dark of the night. Next time it will leave with a ring on it!
Hopefully we will get a few more evenings in next week before the moon is 'wrong' again.
