Family Nightjar Walk – Greenham Common @ Greenham Common
May 28 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Join BBOWT on this short walk to Sandleford heath (from the Pyle Hill Car park), to witness the amazing night-time antics of the nightjar – the weird churring, the bizarre wing clapping and the enigmatic “gwip” call.

Having arrived back in May from their winter holidays in Africa, these birds are now setting up territories wherever they can find suitable heathland habitat for rearing their young .

Wrap up warm for this evening walk; the ground can be uneven so sturdy footwear is essential. Insect repellent is a good idea, as is a torch for the walk back to the cars by which time it will be almost dark. Binoculars may also be useful before it gets too dark.

The event is free, but donations will be accepted on the day.
