Nightjar and Chips

With my daughter and a friend having a pizza and film night to celebrate the end of their exams my Wife and I decided to take the dog on a long walk to Ogbourne St George. To save ourselves a long walk home in the dark we took a car down to Ogbourne. On the walk we saw good numbers of Yellowhammer and Whitethroat, also Skylarks and Corn Buntings. Arriving in Ogbourne we went into the Inn With The well for a drink. As they had finished serving food we had our drink and then drove to Marlborough to get Chips. We ended up with Pie and Chips and Sausage and Chips which we took into Savernake to eat. Within five minutes of parking along the Grand Avenue at about ten to ten we heard a Nightjar churring. It carried on almost constantly for the twenty minutes or so that we were there. Also heard were Tawny Owl and Woodcock.
