Goat Sucker

A quick sniff of the wind confirmed that the conditions were right. And so a motley band of muggles were assembled from the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales (WTSWW) and Ruperra Conservation Trust to see our local nightjar. Despite uttering "Pa! Call this wildlife" they were completely bowled over by the skill and expertise of the ringer in charge. They were also impressed by the nightjar territory display. The performance of the ringing assistant wasnt mentioned.

Camera work could be improved...
Two males and a female were seen along with several bats!
