A NIGHT FOR NIGHTJARS ON WEDNESDAY 8th JUNE

European nightjar (Caprimulgus europaeus) (male) on Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) at dusk, Ashdown Forest, Sussex, England

Please note change of date from that shown in the 2022 programme.

We will meet as in previous years at the Whitehouse car park (postcode WS12 4PR) on Cannock Chase at 9pm. Hopefully we will see and hear these enigmatic visitors.  There is also a very good chance of seeing Woodcock performing their roding flight and perhaps cuckoos. Put some warm clothes on as it can get quite chilly when the sun goes down and a torch may be useful to get back to the car park.
