Nightjar evening field trip,

Usually birding is best in the morning. But we also offer an evening field trip. The main goal of our evening field trips is to find the Nightjar (Caprimulgus europaeus). This species is getting rare in the North West of Europe. But we know where to find them.

The depart will be from a train station close to Amsterdam. The time of departure depends on your personal wishes and the time of sunset. We will drive for around 1 hour to the eastern part of the Netherlands. We will search for the Nightjar for around 2 hours. A very relaxing and exiting event to end the day !
