A most successful trip with 42 species seen/heard by a mixed group of 8 OBC and DOS members. The highlights included good but distant views of a kingfisher, a buzzard, linnets, yellow hammer, repeated sightings of a hunting barn owl, 5 or 6 separate views of flying woodcock and finally, a couple of views of a flying nightjar. We heard 3 churring males which is similar to that of previous years, but sadly, the young trees growing within the clearing have now reached a critical height that makes viewing these birds particularly difficult. Consequently, we may have to find a new location next year for this popular trip.
