the latham’s snipe has returned …

A big thanks to The Cape residents Jeannie and Gabi who helped me conduct our first Latham’s Snipe survey for the season last Saturday in windy, wintery conditions. After about two hours of stomping around in our gumboots, we finally managed to flush one Snipe out of the bog near the central wetland complex. This is a spot they have been seen before and is confirmation this area is favourable Snipe habitat, and the reason the restored creek line was modified near its junction with the wetland to accommodate these amazing birds.
