First Nightjar of Spring

Yesterday we went for a "pelagic" on Andrew H's company boat. Great boat, shame about the weather, very MISTY. Not even a phalarope to be seen.

Back home in the evening, we heard the distinct ( like polystyrene dragged acrooss a pane of glass ) call of Savanna Nightjar. The first of spring. This is a call we'll be hearing well into April.

Here's one I photographed a couple of years ago.
