Little Tern

Went in search of vagrant wader in North Wales yesterday but had gone with the tide by the time I arrived and wasn't seen since! Consoled myself with the Little Tern colony at Gronant. Really good year for them talking to a volunteer warden with 135 pairs. Some stunning Pyramidal Orchids too

Nightjar and Woodcock

Fabulous evening watching a pair of Nightjar performing courtship and feeding behaviour in South Yorkshire. As well hearing churring there was a pig like call the Nightjar did when flying. Also seen were a Short eared Owl on route and roding Woodcock
