Yes, one Snipe definitely, another probable, and something else that might not even be a third bird...

I think.

So they are Common Snipe? Martin was the first to suggest Snipe.

I have to confess that I may and only may have found 2 Common Snipe in the photo. I am not 100% sure.

I hope you are feeling better Alan.

see.

Well I got just one of the Snipe in your image, Alan. The one bottom left of the mud patch.

Glad you are feeling better.
