Nightjars

Enjoyed a wonderful evening with the local Nightjars last night.  They weren't especially vocal but offered amazing views along the main track from 21:40.  I saw two males and one female, which is pretty much the norm for this relatively new site...

Such great birds to watch in flight

The exposure settings on the camera makes this photo look like it was taken in daylight - but the light levels were the same as they are in the above two shots.  With such a slow shutter speed I'm surprised how steady my hands were!


Hope the nights warm up for them soon!
