Nightjars

I've just returned from a wonderful 2-week trip to the Kimberley region in WA's far north. It was just fantastic to get away for a while and as always the scenery is stunningly spectacular!

One of the highlights for me was being able to photograph at close range two of our secretive nocturnal birds: A Spotted Nightjar (of which we saw about 12 in one night driving along a dirt road), and an Australian Owlet-nightjar, of which there was only one!

Here are the best of the bunch - aren't the markings of the Spotted simply amazing!?
