It was nice to see new members turning out for the nightjar’s evening: Many of them had never seen a nightjar before. The evening was cloudy with no moon, which wasn’t ideal. We waited patiently for the nightjars to begin their churring. Then, in the evening gloom, we caught sight of a
female nightjar flying around catching insects and occasionally calling. One bird nearly settled on the overhead wires. In all we had just 3 females flying over, but no males were seen, unfortunately.
Please feel free to read through our reports from our monthly outdoor meetings.
