What an exciting outing, this was my third visit to Long Valley attended to the hkbws group.  It was a totally different experience.  I spotted birds.  Gratitude to the Crested Bulbul course that helped to switch on the binocular function of my pair of impaired eyes.  I recognized not more than five faces whom have taken the course and I wondered where were the other thirty-five students.  Anyway it was a Fool's Day.

Sir HF have paid special attention to our elementary watchers.  He has pinpointed to the exact level of knowledge that we needed.  When we observed a few snipes, some Master Brothers argued if they were common snipes.  Sir HF has helped us to examine the non-symmetric pattern of the yellowish strips run along the back.  Since I only got a side view, I have tried to measure the length of the bill that appears roughly 2.2 times to the length of the head.
