Hi all
I popped down to the Sphinx Memorial Car park near the Bobbin Head entrance of Ku-ring-gai National park in Sydney this evening (25 Jan 2009) between 7:55pm and 8:50pm. I heard 3 White Throated Nightjars calling from about 8:20pm and in the gloaming saw 2 hawking in the distance over the ridge that carries the Bobbin Head Track. Two were calling from this area, but one of the birds called from very near the car park (if one is looking out over the sphinx's head at the flagpole, it was over my left shoulder, so in the bush a little way back up the entrance road). It called quite load and clear three times over a 15 minute period and then silence, which means it may have left to hunt for the evening?
I also heard an Owlet Nightjar call.
