Lots of visits to "favourite perch", a really nice view.
It's Twitter, so the tweet might disappear at any time.
Thank you so much for including this loverly twitter video Scylla

I should have explained - after all, not everyone is here every day! I did it because a Stonechat (male and female, actually) have visited this nest a lot, but of course it doesn't show up at its best on a low-res cam. More than anyone, I need to learn what they really look like ;)

Nightcam scene last night:
Spider started work (from what we could see):
It must have been working very hard:
We were left with a lot more web showing than usual :)
It rained on 'n off overnight and probably still is doing so. No-one seen up to about 09:20.
Someone tweeted their first NIGHTJAR find Lovely to see it in colour - what great camouflage :o
This afternoon CJ7 spent a few seconds on the nest but the cam was madly glitchy so here are a few snaps. She didn't "do" anything.
Later a corvid visited twice, did a lot of preening on the perch and the fencing, this is just its departure:
Then the tiny spider came down and seemed to wrap and remove the "morsel" on the right:
I woke up to a complete seize-up this morning and it looks as tho there'd been problems for several hours, so I've probably got more gaps than usual.
What a flaming tragedy, our Nightjar "sang" for 2 minutes then spent nearly 5 minutes on the perch. I just sent a snap to my friend and he couldn't "spot the Nightjar" - but I had the advantage of flashing eyes
I made the video Unlisted because I haven't edited it.
Only part of the web was demolished, that was @ 02:35 - the big blob is a mystery objet, it's not the spider.
Lovely clear transition to daycam but it was actually quite misty, you've seen it before so no snap, gotta get onnnnn !!!

Got it scylla! Great video. Never seen/heard a nightjar in the flesh
