Three JACK SNIPES at East Hyde

I spent a fantastic half-hour at East Hyde from 3.45 today, where along with a couple of other birders, I had very close and prolonged views of 3 JACK SNIPE. One of these showed in the open down to about 10m from the road bridge, very obliging! ll 3 birds were on the small stream that runs parallel to the main river channel, and which I believe to be just in Herts (though just a few metres from the Beds border).

Also on the same stream were 3 Green Sandpipers, 1 Water Rail and a single Teal; while on the main river were 6 Gadwall (Jason Chapman)
