Night time Patch Working, Insane Patch first #2

I decided to do abit of after dark walking of the patch, and it came up trumps with another Patch first!
I was walking through a field at 7:50pm while wathcing Foxes scuttling around, and seeing their eyes glowing in the torchlight, i heard the distinctive call of a OYSTERCATCHER flying over! i heard it about 7 times as it passed over in a southerly direction, A bird would never had had on the patch otherwhys.
And a reason for more people to get out and hear migration at night!

5 Tawney Owl were calling around

Nice one Craig. Will have to listen out for a patch night time flyover wader.

Although I do do a few night visits throught the year looking and listening for owls etc

It does open a new dimension to patch birding, imagine how much people miss when birds fly over at night!
Good luck,

Your mate Craig had a flock of Grey PLover go over just, so it may be a good time to get out with waders moving!
