Weeting Heath

We saw two Stone Curlews - one was very unsociable and wouldn't turn around to be photographed but the other was showing very well. But without doubt, the best part was seeing two Spotted Flycatchers feeding young in a nest only a couple of metres away from us - I managed to get a decent film. The adults were showing amazingly well allowing me to get my best ever photos of the bird. Spotted Flycatchers are now my favourite bird. For the first time, we didn't manage to see the Nightjars at May Day Farm, but we did hear the incredible churring sound they make. We also heard two juvenile Tawny Owls and saw a few Glow Worms. During the journey home, we had an incredible view of a Barn Owl flying across the road.
