On Saturday I finally succeeded in seeing my annual Nightjars, I met Richard and Peter in the Ashdown Forest and we had at least four churring males, one of which showed quite well in silhouette on a singing post. Also a couple of Woodcocks calling but not seen. This follows a largely disappointing evening (thanks to the weather) at Chobham with Jamie and Josh on the June 23rd where we heard one Nightjar and saw a couple of Woodcocks.
