An attempt at Woodcock catching last night was a successful one! After several failed attempts before Christmas I was starting to wonder I we were going to catch any this winter. The weather has been so warm that Woodcock have not ventured to our part of Dorset in any decent numbers so fingers crossed for a cold spell before springs upon us! It simply didn’t feel right being out at night in the middle of January wearing just two layers!
I bet this fella doesn’t mind the warm weather although he's probably feeling a little lonely as it was the only one I saw last night.
