|Nightjar - Photo by Roger Tidman|
Almost on 10pm we heard our first Nightjar as a male came flying over the track so close you hardly needed binoculars and the white patches on its wings were very clear. This bird repeated this once or twice and also sat at the top of a pine singing its mechanical song. On one occasion a female appeared and they moved off together. Later walking back to the car park two Nightjars flew over the road together and they may have been additional birds. This was one of the best Nightjar evenings I can remember and however many times I see these fabulous birds I never tire of the experience.
