Andrew Hoodless took Miranda Krestovnikoff on a search for woodcock for Radio 4’s Living World programme of 19th February. Miranda had never seen a woodcock before because, as Andrew Hoodless explained, ‘It is the bird-watchers ‘bogie-bird’. Cryptic and rarely seen. When a bird flew down a ride just above their heads, Miranda exclaimed, ‘Wow the head … gosh … so fast, glad you were here, I’d have missed it.’

Don’t miss your chance to listen to this insightful programme.’
