Looking for Nightjars again - 27th June 2014

Accompanied by Gabe, we set out to look for Nightjars, which Gabe had never seen before. We were welcomed rather nicely by a beautiful sunset.

Just one of the very few birds that we sighted on the heath.

Deer were out and about on the heath as we continued to search for the nocturnal creatures.

As we headed back pretty much birdless, a loud churring sound came out of a nearby tree; a Nightjar eventually came out and perched. Believe it or not, the bird is on the left of the forked branch. Honest!
