Ray O' Reilly, KOS Outdoor Meetings organiser, writes:

We carried out our Annual Nightjar walk on the evening of Friday 27th May, meeting in the carpark ar Broadwater Warren RSPB Reserve.  A Song Thrush serenaded our arrival, and numerous Willow Warblers sang and, at times, showed themselves in the  Birch trees.  We recorded at least double figures of the species.  Stonechats and obliging Cuckoos were also seen, but the highlight was the group seeing up to six Nightjars well, with a pair calling and wing-clapping above our heads.  The sight of these lovely enigmatic birds added their usual magic to a clear still dusk in early Summer woodland, and a very happy group of members made their way back to the carpark!
