|woodcock served with bacon, parsnip, potatoes and carrots.|
The woodcock has very little meat on its body but taste great, a bit like liver but slightly meaty. The meat is also very filling and it barely has any fat. Woodcock is a British delicacy usually cooked with all of its insides still intact. This is apparently because they tend to empty their bowels before taking flight. It should certainly be on your to eat list when visiting Britain in Autumn or Winter.
