Last night we were in the car heading for a birthday bash at the Cook and Barker ( very nice it was too, at Newton on the Moor just half a mile from the A1) at dusk, just on the cusp of darkness when a Woodcock narrowly missed being flattened by my car near Longhoughton Quarry. As we headed south on the A1 another came over the road, this time high up, heading out to open damp areas to feed.

I always feel that I've had a good bird when I glimpse a Woodcock....

By the way, have a look on Graham Catleys blog link to see his flight shots of them. He is complaining that he couldn't get a better shot! You never see them as good as that, let alone take a picture of one.
