I have heard of indications of 24 hr migration distances up to a couple hundred miles or so, some less...woodcock are a difficult bird to study.
Weather over that time could also make the effort more difficult, or not....same for finding food and the low levels at which they migrate as factors.
That said, nests can be difficult to spot and genetic bird behavior itself may feed into flush distances at times as well.
Regardless, tired and short flushes happen....always have.
Tough gig...migration.
