Yesterday whilst walking the dog and avoiding the half term crowds around the lakes, I flushed a Jack Snipe from the perimeter of the fenced in 'snipe paddock' beyond the dragonfly pond. I was walking along the perimeter fence line and let out an expletive when my boot lace came undone in the mud - my shout caused the JS to flush from about a foot away! Also just afterwards a Common Snipe towered away. The JS flew low about 6 metres and scuttled off into the vegetation.
