I would like to respectfully suggest (not with the aim of being contentious) that a “monthly flush” at this site will in my opinion result eventually in these birds deserting. This has happened in other places due to over-zealous but well-meaning ornithologists tracking Jacksnipe. The disturbance may well be excessive. Would one or maybe two ‘flushes’ at the most not be sufficient?
