Nightjars : Cwm Kenfig, Llangynwyd

After a fruitless wait for the Purple Heron earlier in the day at Kenfig NNR I decided to make a late evening first visit of Spring to my local Nightjar site in the hope that the birds are still using the site.
I was a little dubious as since last year the sapling firs have now grown to 5 - 6' and a lot of Willow scrub has grown around the margins.
Nevertheless I managed to see and just about photograph a male and female bird and may have had a third bird on the way back to the car, don't be fooled by the brightness of the images as the first bird didn't appear until 9.40pm and most of the shots were taken at 10,000 - 16,000 ISO the camera being barely able to auto-focus..........
