More Nightjar news

The Nightjar that took up residence in Codnor has finally moved on, according to Birdguides. The owners of the house have posted a thank you note to everyone who visited, and have managed to raise £107 for the RSPB.

I visited again on Wednesday night and managed to take this crappy photo in the gathering gloom.

I also got some better video of it doing it little bobbing dance, having a yawn and a snap at some flies before streching it wings and having a flap round the garden. It was a pretty awesome sight, to be so close to it when it finally took to the wing and disappeared over the hedge at 720pm. It kept returning to the same spot every morning until today when it didn't come back.
