Following a visit to the Temples of Abu Simnel we sent the evening looking for Egyptian Nightjars. There was no sign of them, several bats but no Nightjars. The next day involved another long journey as we turned back north to Luxor via Aswan. We stayed at a hotel I had stayed at in February on Crocodile Island on the Nile. It was much quieter,in terms, of visitors as their 'season' doesn't really start until the winter months. There didnt seem so many species either with fewer migrants around the lush gardens and reedbeds of the island. The speciality birds: Red Avadavat and Nile valley Sunbird were there but not so easy to see as in February.
