Bushy park sounds so exotic so many birds.
Nice snipe shots, I didn't realise that the under wins were so white.

The underwings are nicely patterned, not as barred as the Wilson's Snipe the trouble is unless they strecth their wings, the best chance of seeing it is when they do their display flight.
