Nightjar Walk

If you haven’t experienced the magic of listening for Nightjars on Yateley Common at dusk, you’re in for a treat. Weather permitting, we will hear their ethereal ‘churring’ and may even see them in flight. These special, nocturnal birds come all the way from Africa to nest here and Sarah, from the Thames Basin Heaths Partnership, will be joining us to share the experience and to explain why Nightjars are her favourite birds. Short walk of 1-2 miles. Suitable for anyone able to negotiate heathland paths. A torch may be useful for returning in the dark. Long trousers and long sleeves recommended. Sturdy shoes (e.g. trainers fine) recommended. We’ll aim to return to the Wyndhams Pool car park by 10pm.
