White -throated Nightjar in the BNE CBD

Sitting in my office talking on a conference call I noticed a White-throated 
Nighjar fly by my window being mobbed by Welcome Swallows about 10:00 AM.  The 
bird landed on a concrete barrier which runs between the South Bank Train 
Station and Southbank Institute of Technology (BNE).  When a bus would drive by 
it would take to the air and be mobbed again before settling back down.  It has 
been going on for about 30 odd minutes now.  

I presume this would be a migrant who picked an unfortunate over day roost, 
because there is certainly no habitat near by...Too bad I don't have my bins!
