Although I have heard both Nightingale and Thrush Nightingale in Dorset before I haven't actually seen either, so headed to White Nothe this morning to look for the former. About 6 males were singing on arrival but it took a couple of hours of patient watching of the dense coastal scrub to actually see one (pictured distantly through heat haze). The local Yellowhammers were more obliging, posing against a background of gorse covered hillside.
