Wilson's Snipe

I had to go back to Bolton Flats and try to see a Wilson's Snipe.  The overflow at the entrance was quite deep and fast this morning, but I chose my steps carefully and splashed through with my waterproof hiking shoes.  Success!  I spent an hour there before anyone else arrived.  The people who came in after me were not very quiet as they came through the overflow, and I wondered how they expected to see anything after making all that noise.
