People are being invited to take part in an opportunity to hear and see nightjars as they feed and call.
The birds fly from Africa to breed in Thetford Forest and are most active during dusk.
Forestry Commission ecologist Neal Armour-Chelu and nightjar expert Rob Hoblyn will lead the event which will take place on Tuesday, June 26 and Tuesday, July 3.
Nightjars have great aerial agility and do rapid twists and turns to catch their prey
Please are asked to wear clothing and footwear suitable for the forest environment and for the drop in temperature as night falls.
