Nightjars .... and Car Trouble

I had an interesting time at Llanwonno last night. The Club had nearly 50 members in attendance for the annual Nightjar evening. Geri started proceedings in pessimistic mood by saying that given the large crowd we may be unlucky. He shouldn't have worried though as well before dark a male started churring very close by and soon came in to view, giving great close-ups in flight and at rest. A second bird was seen in flight too. Great! On the way home however, the car got stuck in reverse gear. Luckily the boys were on hand to shunt me clear of the road. After a short wait of 45 minutes or so, the recovery vehicle was on hand to carry me home. Great service, but I missed the beer.
