Nightjar - Video Footage

Here's a short video clip of the juvenile patch Nightjar, taken late August. As is expected with night photography/videography the ISO setting was very high but this has slightly less influence on the final result than it does with stills.
Hopefully they'll have a successful breeding again if/when they return next year. It'd be good to have 2 breeding pairs again like we had in 2015!

    1. Thanks Steph! Yeah a bit of time involved in learning the routine of the bird and also a lot of eye straining ha. Definitely worth it though; great to watch them even if pics are difficult.
