Many times i went for a specific bird at specific locations but Exploring the area and finding the log awaited lifer gave extraordinary happiness.
Every year i went Kutch for passage migrant during mid September,also i was at Kutch on 17th to 20th September 2018 with my besties  but this time we were with Vikramsinh Sodha at Kunj Homestay.He is in my list of one of best guide due to many reasons.mostly he gave his best for desire species, confirm locations, good knowledge of many years etc.
we reached around in the evening of 17th, got Red-backed and Red-tailed Shrike as planned. then we returned and talk for real exploration in the night.so we entered the area around at 8pm,sighted jungle cat,spent 20min for good photos but didn't got so we went inside.its total darkness,we were unable to see anything except where my cheetah's headlight was falling.Drive for 30+min and then i turn my car so xuv has feature of side beam light and sudden i saw a bird was sitting.we all thought for nightjar or harrier.so i turn my xuv towards it and took record shot from distance for id,it was a nightjar.then sudden it fly but we have torch and didnt fly for long distance so Vikramsinh told to off the light and drive slowly towards it then turn to one side and i did.then i on the headlight and we came out very carefully,this beauty gave 1+min and perk is here.
