A family of common snipes gathered on a pond in Long Valley on March 18th.  They preyed on crustaceans, they played around, they took bath, they enjoyed the good morning.  But, how many snipes were there?

Good question!  Definite 6 in the clear and a possible couple of camouflaged others.

I'll go for 7.

Thank you for your guess, Subbuteo.  Actually two walked out from the bush after five minutes.  I did not have a final count since I left by then.
