Savanna Nightjar student

Monday 14th January,  the unmistakable call of a Savanna Nightjar started to resound from the roof of the University of Phnom Penh. It was dusk but I could see a male (white wing patch and tail corner) perched on a pole and uttering its call, sometimes answered by another bird in the backgarden trees.

There used to be a regular family roosting at the National Library, and hunting in central PP since the 1990's at least. So I wonder if this is another pair/group, ot if they have relocated to the outskirts...
