Bricksbury Hill (23rd June)

The annual North East Hants RSPB group visit for Nightjars. The amount of people that turned up was phenomenal - the highest I have ever seen it.

The total species encountered was fairly low as to be expected. What was disappointing was the lack of Woodcock.

We started well with a Hobby sitting on a tree briefly but it took until 9.30pm until the first Nightjar started calling. I managed to scope it briefly in the top of a tree and then it dropped where it was joined by a female.

I was so tired and cold that decided to quit early.
