Snipe, a kingfisher and a goldfinch

Common Snipe, Gallinago gallinago
The sun shone this morning for the first time in a few days so I visited Arundel WWT for a few hours. At the Ramsar hide a kingfisher flew past and quite a few snipe. The Lapwing hide has up to a dozen snipe with the light falling well on them. The woodland feeders had a Goldfinch and a large rat was clearing up the seeds on the ground. Finally, a jackdaw perched on a tree by the lake. Some waterfowl were showing signs of pairing up. A few fungi were flourishing but I haven't had time to identify them.
