Woodcock (Scolopax rusticola, Linnaeus 1758) is one of the most prevailing types of the Scalopax species, and presents the important species in the entire biocenosis. Although today the woodcock population is considered stable worldwide, the newest research in biology and concrete guidelines in hunting management are necessary for the future. The reason to start this research was simply this unsufficiently researched population of woodcock which has its habitat in our area. According to the data available from the literature morphological values gathered match.
