Oystercatchers and Helmetshrikes

Nightjar season is in full swing here which is something that keeps me very busy every year, and this year is no exception. I’m currently watching over 15 sites and still have a few more to check out. I found my first Nightjar nest of the year yesterday and hope to find at least another one or two before the season is over. This has kept me from updating the site much, or indeed from taking many photographs. Nevertheless, two new images have been added to the gallery this afternoon. First up is a Eurasian Oystercatcher photographed on the beach of Büsum, Germany, on a warm afternoon in 2018. The next image is one of a small flock of White-crested Helmetshrikes seen in the Kruger National Park, South Africa. I spotted them whilst leaving a rest camp at dawn.
