A Snipe Fell Out of the Sky Today

Walking through the Rhombus Field today a snipe fell out of the sky and plummeted in to the ground right in front of me, its long beak embedded in the snow. I warmed the wader inside my jacket until it began to struggle, opened my jacket and it zoomed away across the River Stour.

I’ve had encounters with snipe two days in a row.

    Good to hear you were able to rescue and revive it. I daresay that Siberian cold front might have upset a few of the early Spring flora and fauna in the area.

    Nice save. A drink would have helped it too I bet.
