A wisp of Snipe

Ken had an interesting movement of Snipe on Friday totalling 27 birds during an hour flying up to Beeley Triangle from the Cathole (Holymoorside). This party of 10 was the largest group. 
Robin Elliot also saw a single Jack Snipe at Ramsley Reservoir with a couple of Common Snipe which have been widely reported in the country as immigrants from the continent so check any flyovers.
Ken also had Fieldfare today which is the first I have heard of locally and numbers of Stonechat have increased, I had a party of at least 7 on Bent Lane today and there were singles and pairs reported elsewhere on the moor.
