CommentLatham's Snipe feeding on our dam. These birds turn up occasionally on their migration from Japan to the southern states. This year a pair stayed on the farm for 3 weeks, feeding on worms and small crustaceans in the silt around the Dams edge. This shot was taken during 3 hours of sitting cramped in a cold wind, without moving. Took a week to get over it.
