After going to Chobham last week, with a warm day and clear skies, I went back again last night but this time in the company of Dave Simms and later on my brother-in-law Martin
Bird-wise it was very much as before. After getting there at about 7.15, the first thing we saw was this broad-bodied chaser soaking up the evening sun.
We quickly picked up Dartford warblers on the heath, , including this one with a large juicy caterpillar. Despite searching we couldn't find any tree pipits though.
I still want to go back again to get a better view of the nightjars though!!
