Searching for Nightjars

European Nightjars are one of my favourite birds. They are hard to find, even harder to see and I always seem to watch from the wrong place. Nevertheless, I have had some wonderful experiences with these enigmatic birds over the years and wanted to share a little of the experience with you. Part of the excitement is being present out in a wild place as night falls. Pretty spooky! Add to that the nightmarish levels of insects that want to drink your blood and you create an unforgettable wildlife experience!

Nightjars are rare and very susceptible to disturbance so I won't reveal the location of my video. It is a bit clunky as I've not done much of this editing stuff before. I hope you enjoy it!
