Ventriloquial Crepuscular Goatsuckers.

Sunday 26th June 2011. Brendan G, Paul F and myself paid a late evening visit to Chobham Common, Surrey. We saw approx 6 roding Woodcock and 4 or 5 Nightjar. The Nightjars started churring at 21:45 and then showing either perched up on a pine or catching insects in flight from 22:00. Woodcock were seen from 21:00. Also noted were 2 or 3 species of bat and a slow worm. Lots of flies and midges!
