Woodcock?

Woodcock?

Observation - Woodcock? - UK and Ireland. Description: I found this (unfortunately dead) bird on the pavement (near some small woodland). Is it a woodcock? Does the damaged eye indicate it was hit by a vehicle? Would it have wandered from its woodland to search for unfrozen water?
