Comments by the Expert Panel on this record:

Comment number:   1
By:   Lisl van Deventer
Comment:   Grey colour points towards both European Nightjar and Rufous-cheeked Nightjar. Difficult to confirm without description of wing and tail pattern. For area and habitat, most likely a Rufous-cheeked Nightjar
