Nightjar

The Springwatch team invited me up to Ynys Hir for a couple of days to have a look around behind the scenes, meet the crew, etc. I had a great time there. I went for a wander around the reserve on the first afternoon, but didn't get very far at all before finding this perched in a tree. I believe it's the first time the RSPB warden had heard of one there, although it's thought it was just taking a rest
on its way to somewhere else. It is a target species for the reserve though, so hopefully more will be seen there in the future. I've seen Nightjar many times at night, but this was the first time I'd been lucky enough to find one in daylight, and been able to enjoy it without being marauded by midges!
I expect the iPlayer link to the episode I was on will expire eventually, but they've now added the film itself to the clips page too.
