    Hi, Today (7th Jan) I have seen a snipe foraging for food in my back garden in Snakeel, Killeshandra.
    Brown in colour with yellow stripes down its back and a long curved beak, about the same size as a blackbird.

      Hi, I think the snipe had a hard time with the duration and the depth of the frost. I watched one looking very lost on the road . They had to go to hedges and woods to find food.
