Accompanied by Gabe, we set out to look for Nightjars, which Gabe had never seen before. We were welcomed rather nicely by a beautiful sunset.
Gull flying across the sunset
Just one of the very few birds that we sighted on the heath.
Deer were out and about on the heath as we continued to search for the nocturnal creatures.
As we headed back pretty much birdless, a loud churring sound came out of a nearby tree; a Nightjar eventually came out and perched. Believe it or not, the bird is on the left of the forked branch. Honest!
We set off yet again at the early hour of 07:00, not to see a Bee-eater, but to see if we could get better views of the Eagle and sure enough, we did. Better photos as well.
We finally decided to cautiously walk nearer to the bird and join the majority of the birders. We settled in a spot 150 meters from the bird. Unfortunately, the haze makes the photo slightly out of focus. For once in my life I wished it was colder.
