Number of birds recorded in Northwood and Medham rises to 65.

Early in the morning of 16 April 2007 Barry and Pauline Sowerby heard a nightjar and long-eared owl from Horseshoe Close, with the calls coming from the direction of the school. These birds make an excellent addition to our list (which is now up to 65). In the case of the nightjar, a somewhat unexpected one. It just shows that you never know what bird might turn up in our area. The nightjar is a migrant which returns to the UK every spring to breed. Parkhurst Forest is a good place to hear them, although they are difficult to see due to their nocturnal habits and cryptic appearance. The male’s churring song is quite distinctive.
