Jack Snipe (Lymnocryptes minimus)

An easily overlooked bird that sits tight in marshy and damp areas, the Jack Snipe over-winters in Portugal and I have often come across them out on the Plains. However, they are usually gone before one can say "Jack Snipe" whirring away to land a short distance off and become invisible again. I look forward to the day when I get a picture of one of these on my "home patch"!
