https://uk.news.yahoo.com/extremely-rare-pictures-reclusive-british-102357880.html#CTz6dlv This article from Yahoo News includes photographs of the seldom seen Nightjar eggs and a hatchling near Hennock reservoir in Dartmoor, U.K.. The sighting and photographs were by U.K. police officer Joshua Marshall, a member of the British Trust for Ornithology. Nightjars migrate from Africa to nest in Britain during the Summer, with an RSPB estimate of less than 5,000 breeding pairs.
Here is a picture of a Nightjar taken early in the morning at Bhandhavgarh. while the guide stopped the gypsy (jeep) and pointed it out to me, it was a couple of minutes before i could see it. It seems they can remain quite still and blend themselves with the surroundings ( in this case some rocks and dry shrubbery) very well. I believe there are different types of Nightjars. Could someone share their pictures and educate me on the types and differences? Thank you.
