Snipe Drumming - one of the incredible sounds of Spring!

Click here to hear sound recording -

One of my favourite sounds of the Spring - a drumming Snipe. To think that the noise is made by using it's outer tail feathers is amazing. Look at the weird Sonogram (if you can call a non call / song a sonogram). This bird was drumming at dusk up in the Gwydir on Friday evening.

Tony Kearney reported up to 9 Nightjars in various parts of the Gwydir last night - amazing! He also came face to face with a massive Bull at midnight - he's still shaking now!!!
