Nightjars - Beeley Moor

The only regular bird ringing on Beeley Moor is carried out by George Briggs, his main focus is Meadow Pipits in the Spring and Autumn and thrushes over the winter but he is also licensed to ring Nightjars and has caught several birds over the last few years including a bird first caught in the Clumber Park area in Nottinghamshire. 
During August George caught three birds and he has kindly sent me the photos, he has aged the top two as juveniles and the bottom as possibly a first summer male.
