Another attempt off the trail

Torches on and we were on our way scanning the jungle along the main road in search of that shy animal when just not far from the guard house, Apai Elan spotted a nightjar sitting on a bare ground nearby access to the telephone tower area. It did not move at all which enabled me to see and photographed this close! It was only until my itchy hand wanted to touch it that it flew off immediately and that was when we discovered it was actually brooding.

Probably hatched already?

At least 6 nightjars and an owl spotted throughout the 1.6km road walk. There wasn't any sign of Slow Loris. At this point, we just cut through jungles heading to the beach.That was about 400m distance.

The tide was low just perfect for a walk back but I'm not sure why it felt ages to return. (^_____^) Luckily the cool breeze in the air kept me going!

Next walk will cover similar route, agi idup, agi ngiga instead!
