In reply to Alan.:
Alan. said:Looking on my app the white belly could be snipe
Yes I've just looked at my 3 Woodcock pictures doing exactly that but they have barred breasts. Maybe Snipe do circles after they have been up "drumming".
I wonder if it had just been flushed by someone and I was in the way for it to land.
This is the original just brightened up as much as I can.
