            Hi Steve

            This is SD56 (and mainly SD56H) not SD54. Some really good sightings on your list. SD54 is the Garstang area.

              Perhaps a list of the monthly counts would confirm or otherwise whether this is the case?
              Could you let us know the source of the Jack Snipe disturbance that you mention and how often the birds were flushed?
              At Ocean Edge saltmarsh there is a natural flush of Snipe on spring tides. This has been well-monitored over the years by one of the resident birders. He notes that on the second and third days of very high tides the Snipe counts go down (the birds relocate to Middleton NR and other areas) but the Jack Snipe stay tend to stay put. This suggests a daily “flush” has an adverse effect but perhaps not a monthly flush.

                Considering the number of pages and amount of detail this is a moderately priced reference book. I thought you were going to say it cost £50 but it’s only half that. Thanks for the review. I’ll put it on my birthday list!
