Short wildlife tour to Dorset May 2019

One of the highlights of a recent wildlife tour to Dorset was the image that appeared in front of my eyes as I scanned the heath in front of me. I'm sure I must have let out an audible gasp as my eyes clocked on, (and my inner voice was rambing on, ' It couldn't be, could it? Yes it is'.) a roosting Nightjar. Luckily it allowed a fairly close approach but shame about the pale grass stem though.

Nightjar (Caprimulgus eurpaeus)

Red Squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris)
