Nightjars and Bats.

No photos today, but a very pleasant hour watching a nightjar flying low over our out of town hotel pool on Rhodes at dusk. Very clear white spot markings on the wings make for a good identification. Plenty of moths and insects to catch over the warm water. Lovely to watch and the date palms that surround us seem to be host a small colony of possibly pipistrel bats or a similar species.
