Displaying Pin-tailed Whydah
There were also two specials. The best was a male Pennant-winged Nightjar flushed about three times (but evading my attempts to photograph it). What an extraordinary bird, with its long extensions to the 2nd primary feathers. The other was a singing Lesser Swamp Warbler, my first definite record.
The following evening Bosco and I looked for nightjars at dusk along the Nimule road. It soon started to rain heavily and we gave up, but not before seeing an elegant African wild cat crossing the road in front of us. Again no photo, but so good to find another African mammal species (and the next day I found a roost of bats in trees in the office compound - will try to take some photos).
