In August 2017 a BRC team (Jonas Schärer, Xu Shi and Jaime Escobar) observed an Egyptian Nightjar in the Chorokhi Delta which turned out to be the first national record. An article written by Jonas Schärer and Simon Cavaillès has just been released in Dutch Birding. They detail the Chorokhi observation and summarize all European observations of this nightjar species outside its breeding range.
