 Ewan and I went back to Cors Fochno last night for another attempt at Nightjars.  Just after 9:30 the first bird started churring, and from then on we were treated to some of the longest and most frequent churring and calling that I've ever witnessed.  

At least two male and two female birds present; we had a male and two females in the air together at one point and the birds gave us a fantastic aerial display until around 10:00pm when the activity died down somewhat.

PS  The midgies were ferocious last night, but one other person was out there braving the swarms; none other than Ina Smith.
