Hunting the Woodcock in Scotland

Woodcock are essentially wading birds which inhabit damp woodland, often within pheasant woods, but they feed predominantly nocturnally around streams, pasture fields and on boggy ground, and prefer denser cover during the day.

The resident population in Britain is increased by a large over-wintering migrant population. Swooping, erratic flight makes it a prized quarry, particularly on walked up shoots.

Woodcock hunting season is 1 October – 31 January (England, Wales and NI)
And 1 September – 31 January (Scotland)
