Nocmig Nightjar

So the nocmig garden list continues!The best of the bunch being a calling Nightjar at 04.55hrs this morning! This is only the second time we have recorded Nightjar in the garden, the last time was on the 29th May 2011 when one was over the park at dusk. 

Other recent highlights over the garden have been Teal and a very close Barn Owl which you can hear on this link:


  1. Ha! Excellent, Chris! Mostly I haven't been checking my recordings beyond when the dawn chorus commences at about 03:00, but after your result here I shall make more of an effort.

  2. Thanks Gavin. I must admit, I nearly ignored it as the Herring Gulls were kicking off and it wasn't obvious! It makes you wonder what we miss when trawling through!
