LNHS Surrey, 2nd June 2017

This evening, a few members of the CFBW Bird Group went on an off-patch jaunt to a site within the LNHS area to look for Nightjars... We were successful, enjoying superb views of a pair and trying to listen to the male churring between passing planes. A Woodlark was also a valuable spot and at least three Willow Warblers were singing. (While driving to the site, two Mallards flew over the patch recording area.)

A Nightjar!

Incidentally, I'll note that while sitting in the pub next door to my flat yesterday evening, a Pied Wagtail flew over and 11 of the locally nesting Swifts were on their aerial rampage.
