For me woodcock and snipe are the two best game birds in the entire world. They are quite small: woodcock needs roasting in a hot oven for only about 20 minutes and snipe for even less time. Best of all would be to wrap them in fatty bacon, truss them and spit-roast them over the embers of an open fire. You will probably never do that, so let’s go back to the oven plan.
