Stephen Northwood found this singing COMMON NIGHTINGALE just under three weeks ago in the thick scrub photographed immediately north of the Bowling Green in Ampthill Town Centre. The bird was singing at 2pm today but normally sings from 8pm through to midnight and from 0400 to 0830 hours each day. It is typically skulking but can be seen if patient. Access from Church Avenue then The Leas, the bird being easily audible from the footpath at the end of the cul-de-sac
