My son and I visited Harold Johnson Nature Reserve on Sunday morning. We have never been there before and it is really beautiful. We went on a lovely 5 km walk through what was mainly forest. One of the highlights of the walk was coming across a nightjar. We spent a long time creeping up on it, centimeter by centimeter so as not to startle it. As well as getting quite a few nice pics, I was able to observe it for quite a while through the binos. We believe it to be a Fiery-necked Nightjar.
What a treat!
