Snipe glut

Snipe glut
By – 7:58 am
Friday morning there is a concentration of at least 22 Wilson’s Snipe in a marshy puddly area at the extreme northeast corner of the former Fairbanks Ranch horse pasture complex along San Dieguito Road. One is looking northwest from the edge of the road into this wet area and so the lighting for photos is good in the morning. There is no legal parking along this busy road along this stretch, so the best thing to do is park just to the northeast of there at the little shopping center in Fairbanks Ranch and then walk to the spot, which again is the extreme northeast corner of the former pasture property, now being largely developed, for what I don’t know. The longer one stands there on the side of the road, the more snipe appear out of cover, so the true grand total may even be higher. Don’t wait too long, as the area will clearly dry up more and more over the ensuing days.Paul Lehman, San DiegoSent from the all new AOL app for Android
