Churring, not seen. I increasingly feel that this is no longer a suitable nesting site for Nightjar: the combination of a large number of dog walkers with off-lead dogs, increasing light and noise pollution from Forester Way and the growing conifers meaning there is less open scrub. But still they come all the way from Africa and churr their little hearts out, bless 'em. SU855657.
