Nightjars at Llyn Bodgynydd

Geoff Gibbs from the NWWT has been up to Llyn Bodgynydd in the Gwydyr Forest above the Ugly house twice recently and only briefly heard the Nightjars churring. He would be interested to know if anyone else has had much luck with them this year? On a similar note I would be interested to know if anyone has had Woodcock or Snipe displaying up there in the last year or two? Please let me know and I will pass on the news to Geoff, thanks.

  1. Went up last sunday in May and heard brief churring by perhaps 2 birds and that was it.

  2. Thanks Rhys. Maybe there just not churning as much if they're busy feeding young?

  4. I had birds churring at Bodgynydd last week, but only for 10-30s at a time not long periods. Heard more calls than churring.
