May is the month when a number of our late migrants arrive.
We were fortunate enough to connect with one of these species this weekend. Nightjars typically arrive in Glamorgan in mid May, and may be found churring and performing they courtship flights at dusk in our upland conifer plantations.
Spotted Flycatchers are another of the late arrivers. Sadly, they are in decline and are no longer a common sight in our parks and woodlands.
