Greenham Common.........

21 June - the midsummer solstice, and a trip to the heathland at Greenham with Richard Williams and Matt Pringle. Not dark til after 10 on the longest evening of the year, but the Nightjars churring from 2149h, at least 2 males, close by at times and a brief flight view. A fantastic summer sound. Also a roding Woodcock heard, and seen briefly, and a juvenile Tawny Owl by the car park. As it turned out, the last day of the June heatwave, 32 deg C!
