Roding Woodcock

A trip out on Wednesday evening to Chobham Common - fantastic close views of a Hobby, a pair of Woodlarks and a pair of Tree Pipits!
Along with singing Dartford Warblers and Stonechats.

A Roebuck was also spotted in long grass.

Then at least 13 views of Woodcock - including roding!

One seriously great close view as a pair flew over us!

We heard some churring and spotted about 4 different Nightjars - disappointingly no really fantastic views (unlike the previous two years) - we were later going this year usually 1st week of June.

But it was a very light evening as well!

2 nice year tics!

Once again Bob and I had a great birding evening! Different each year!
