Nightjar + Wintersett sightings 12.05.2023

Wintersett Res:

The Nightjar was seen again at dawn this morning

so there is a fair chance it may show again tonight  around 21:00 hrs. 

If visiting please park in car park at Anglers Country Park.
Go out of the car park and cross the road to the boathouse, walk left behind the boathouse to the edge of the field, then follow the path towards  the edge of the reservoir and look towards the road.  The Nightjar fed over this area for 10-15 mins last night then disappeared, most likely feeding area is across lake in northeast corner, which you can  also view from here.
