Nightjar Norfolk

I have spent a lot of time in the forests of Norfolk this spring concentrating on getting to know one of my favorite bird the nightjar. Its been productive as I have found five different birds sitting on wood piles. This one is a male, his mate sits on a log a few metres away. Hopefully she will be nesting soon, I was thinking she is a bit late but first egg dates are apparently mid-may to mid-July so there's still plenty of time.


  1. Wish we had them up here in Lancs Kevin.

  2. Great photo, the bird just blends right in!

  3. What a magnificent picture Kevin... Not so easy to get is as beautiful as this one... Well done...
