Night Shift? Your Records Wanted
We are now into the final two months of Bird Atlas 2007-11, and we’re looking to collect as many records of species that are only really active during the latter part of the day. Evenings on still summer days is an excellent time to prove the presence of Quail, detected by their characteristic call.
Other crepuscular species for which you may be able to gather valuable records at that time of day – if you are out in the right habitat – include Nightjar, Owls, Water Rail and Grasshopper Warbler.
Remember, if you discover any of these species during your visits, please enter a suitable breeding code, even H for Habitat or S for Singing is a valuable record.
