Jarring and Owling

Out locally looking for Nightjars revealed one briefly heard, with a Corncrake a short drive away for good measure. A couple of nights later, tried another local site, where Long-eared Owls showed well (hunting adults and at least two fledged young), with Cuckoo, followed by three churring 'Jars as dusk fell.

The owlets were incredibly cute but incessantly noisy. Talk about pester-power, they must drive the parents crazy!

Long-eared Owls phonescoped in the dusk gloom.
