Bicton Common (East Devon)

A late evening walk last night around the common produced 2 Green Woodpeckers (one juvenile) at 21.30 and c 6 Nightjar.  The latter were widespread with churring starting around 21.55 with close sightings at Lookout Copse near Blackhill Quarry.  Some horses and cattle kept me company and the only downside were the midges and noise from a rave somewhere south! 

Note: 'NIghtjar fieldtrip' to Mutters Moor, Sidmouth is scheduled for Tues. 10 July, meeting at 21.00hrs. (East Devon Branch of Devon Birds).  Would some members observe that we are no longer the DBWPS and have not been for several years now.
