Scolopax rusticola – CYFFYLOG – Winter visitor and passage migrant
The BTO winter atlas showed that Woodcocks were present in the majority of 10km squares during the winters of 1981-82, 1982-82 and 1983-84.
The darker the colour, the higher the relative total count for each 10km square. The darkest blue represents over 4 birds seen in a day.
Not easy to locate so it is likely this species was under recorded.
