We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
The Little Nightjar is quite common at our reserve and we quite often find it in the garden hunting insects.
It is a similar size and shape to the rarer Sickle-winged Nightjar with a short tail and size around 18cm. You sometimes find it perched on tree branches.
It has a cinnamon band on the nape and sometimes white on the throat.
