Hi MxM, no, this was at an organized event near Dullstroom.

I wish the photos were better, but that little thing is just too quick! We had amazing sightings though. At one stage it flew 4m in front of me and at another stage it ran 2m in front of me on an open patch of grass! It was crazy stuff!

I headed out early this morning to a Pretoria reserve to look for Rufous-eared Nightjar. I found 3 and totally botched up the opportunity to snap two right alongside the vehicle. :wall: I had to settle for a proof shot of the 3rd one.

Up to 645.
