Red-necked Nightjar

Red-necked Nightjar. Following the finding of a road-killed Red-necked Nightjar in mid afternoon it was decided to stay in the vicinity until nightfall in the hope of seeing a live one.Not only did we see one but about seventeen others evenly spaced along the same stretch of road apparently warming themselves on the road surface.
This photograph was taken using the mini bus's headlights as illumination but did require an ISO setting of 6500!
Tarifa, Southern Spain
