Woodcock probing through the snow/trailcam

In the top picture the woodcock is feeding at 10.22am which is unusual as they usually only feed at night.They spend the days motionless on the woodland floor camaflaged perfectly amongst the leaves(when there,s no snow) and flight to the feeding grounds like damp pastures halfway through dusk so their predators like Perigrine falcons will have less chance of catching them.I spose the snow and frozen ground has forced them in daylight as well to feed........
