The Blackdown Hills and Quantock Hills AONBs, with help from the Society and BTO, are seeking the help of volunteers in monitoring Nightjar populations. We hope that SOS members may be prepared to help. It is also hoped that records of other nocturnal and crepuscular species may be obtained.
This is an exciting project, especially for the Blackdowns, an area which is very much underwatched. On a public Nightjar evening last summer, seven churring males were recorded at just one site.
