Hi all,

Went out last night to try for White-throated Nightjar at the JC Slaughter
Falls area of Mt Coot-tha and wasn't disappointed.  Had a minimum of 2 WT
nightjars flying around in the very early evening (wasn't even dark at the
time).  Of more interest though was the 3 Owlet Nightjars calling from just
off the path, which I understand are not common at the site.  Also had 2
Tawny Frogmouths (seen), at least 3 Powerful Owls heard calling into the
evening, and at least one Southern Boobook calling as well.  On our way out
of the park I also saw a Bush Stone Curlew and a mother and baby Brushtail
Possum to complete a very successful evening of spotlighting.
