European Nightjar

Middlesex Filter Beds: Nightjar roosting on branch of elderberry tree,and still there when I left. Good bino views. From the pond walk towards the Hackney Marshes exit past a black bench. After another ~20-30 yards there is a large elder tree to the left. Look for the broken horizontal branch to the right about 12 ft above the ground and the bird is on that.
