Nightjar churring over the heath

Challenging beasts to get a photo of – unusually for birds they see better in the dark than we do. I located this with a Telinga parabolic dish and then managed to line up a video cam on it set to frame-averaging night mode. They seem to be doing well on Blaxhall heath this year – there seemed to be about five individuals audible simultaneously within Telinga range.
