Snipe Pin-Tailed (Gallinago stenura) – China

Was called Swinhoe’s Snipe.  This bird was assessed as the Pin-Tailed Snipe as against the Greater Painted Snipe but without tail detail, when it flies, one cannot be sure, we did not flush it as it was busy feeding.  However, the probability and location suggests it is the Pin-Tailed Snipe.
