    I’ve been out over the Ashdown Forest this week looking for Nightjars, but I didn’t find any. Are the Nightjars as upset with the Ashdown Forest Conservators as we mountain bikers are? Or are there other forces at work here? Bad weather? was I just unlucky?


    Could be a stupid question. …what time of day were you looking :-)?

    Assuming you’ve gone at dusk, I’ve found a direct correlation between their activity and the light being absent just enough so I can’t get a good look at the blighters!!!! They seem to show later than I expect when I’ve gone searching.

    You may be onto something with the weather though? I’m no expert though.

    Keep us posted with any sightings!
