    International Migration within, to and from Africa in a Globalised World adresses the main issues concerning international migration from an African perspective. This timely book encompasses migration as a global phenomenon and considers African migration in all of its dimensions: within, from and to Africa. Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park is a 35, km² peace park that is in the process of being formed. It will link the Limpopo National Park (formerly known as Coutada 16) in Mozambique, Kruger National Park in South Africa, Gonarezhou National Park, Manjinji Pan Sanctuary and Malipati Safari Area in Zimbabwe, as well as the area between Kruger and Gonarezhou, the Sengwe communal land in.

    I remember having a book when I was young that illustrated the size of a Pennant-winged Nightjar I already have an ‘in search of ’ page dedicated to nightjars and their allies, so it would have made sense to include this as an addendum to that page.   The Pennant-winged Nightjar “ruled the skies. And it ruled my heart, too.” – Kimberly Kaufman. The Pennant-winged Nightjar was a bird that Kenn had dreamed of seeing ever since he was a boy. He took this magnificent photo. I never even lifted my camera. I was so utterly captivated that it never even occurred to me.

Publication date Pennant-winged Nightjar, Macrodipteryx vexillarius Jackson () cautioned that nightjar plumage patterns evolved for camouflage and not as species-specific characters, and varies greatly within species, geographically and individually, to the extent that identification keys placing too much emphasis on plumage are unreliable.

I already have an ‘in search of ’ page dedicated to nightjars and their allies, so it would have made sense to include this as an addendum to that page.

The North American relatives of nightjars are chuck-will’s-widow, pauraque, poorwill, and whippoorwill. In this book different authors investigates the range of the migration experience in Africa. Because of the variety and complexity of the reasons which surround and underpin why African populations are so mobile, this volume adopts an eclectic approach which illustrates the diversity of theoretical positions, as well as methodological and analytical trends.

Nightjar. Bird Atlaswith its focus on daylight survey work, may not have been designed to collect records of Nightjar but the species maps that will be published next year give a good picture of the distribution of this remarkable bird, with some encouraging gains since the breeding atlas.

However, conservation of the species on its breeding grounds is not enough to ensure its survival, and this prompted a further investigation into nightjars’ migration routes and end destinations by the British Trust for Ornithology. The BTO tackled this difficult question by affixing lightweight geolocators to 19 nightjars in   Thanks to its unique location, the Chobe National Park’s is renowned for being one of the best safari vacation destinations in Botswana.

Two main strands run through the discussion: the features of migration that set Africa apart; and evidence from the African context on some of the cross-cutting themes in the migration literature.
