Thu 1 Dec White-throated Nightjar Brooyar State Forest Gympie
Single bird flushed around 4pm about 1km back from the Glastonbury camping area and up the hill near a crossroad (entry via Wide Bay Road, 12km north of Gympie). Bird about 2 metres to rear left when flushed and flew slowly by before landing some 75metres away (relocated, then left alone) - no doubt re ID as I was in the area specifically to locate this species.
