Good nightjar news from the Netherlands

This video shows an European nightjar in Sweden.

Translated from Dutch conservation organisation Natuurmonumenten:

Good news from Heumensoord: shepherd Bart Willers found on the open moorland of this nature reserve near Nijmegen two young nightjar chicks.

It is the first time that these vulnerable birds have been detected breeding outside the area of Heumensoord which is closed to the public. Earlier, nightjars were seen at the airfield site as breeding birds. That the animal now nests succesfully outside this zone indicates that the management is going in the right direction.
