My son plays cricket on the pitch next to Entertainment City once a week, after work.
The past week, I saw an Egyptian Nightjar hawking under the lights on the pitch. As the daylight hours are now increasing, I took my camera this time and obviously the Nightjar never made an appearance.
While my son was warming up, I strolled around the grounds which have quite good habitat; palms, large casuarina and eucalyptus trees. Secretly I'm hoping to find Barn Owl - no luck with that species either/yet.
I did however see a large mixed Hirundine flock passing high overhead after the sun had set. These were all taken with the Canon 100-400mm II, but birds were literally dots in the viewfinder..
In amongst the Barn Swallows were Red-rumped
|Red-rumped Swallow (Cecropis daurica)|
|Common Swift (Apus apus)|
|Alpine Swift (Tachymarptis melba)|
|Crescent Moon and Swift|
|Cracking it away under the lights|
