Gårdagens kväll gav ingen nattskärra. ----- Yesterday evening give me no nightjars.


Jag åkte ut och satte upp näten på en gles tallhöjd och startade ljudspelaren. Finns det nattskärror så brukar de komma direkt, men efter en timmas spelande så hade jag inte sett skymten av en enda nattskärra så det var bara att åka hem igen.

De två näten står i skogskanten och väntar på nattskärran som aldrig kom.
