Woodcock at Woodoaks

Walked Ted to Woodoaks spoke to farmhand Chris,who had flushed what he thought was a snipe last month turned out to be Woodcock when I investigated the top meadow south of the Triangulation stone.
I found the carcasse it was about 3 to 4 days old the wings were in good condition but the head and body had decomposed,it looked like  the work of a raptor as I think a fox would have devoured it.
I took some photos with my phone before continuing my walk which yielded skylark,yellowhammer and meadow pipit.
