Nightjar trip report 24/5/23

The Flash Lane crepuscular trip for Nightjars, Woodcock and Tree Pipit took place on 24th May enjoyed by a group of 22 souls. A fine but rather chilly evening, Nightjars eventually churring but only a brief view. Perhaps too cool and a bit breezy for display flights. Certainly, the vegetation is getting rather tall which doesn’t make for an enjoyable experience, However, roding Woodcock were plentiful. Twenty plus sightings of Woodcock were observed but, unusually, just a couple of Tree Pipits.

The dark quickly descended and the temperature went in the same direction as the hardy gaggle left for home.
