Fiery-necked Nightjar call

Before we left Bergview (while our cottage is being built) I managed to record the Fiery-necked Nightjar early one morning. I hope you can hear it. The call sounds like: "Good Lord deliver us" 

At first the bird's call seems stuck on the first two notes. Then it calls properly and you hear my whispered: "yessss" There are other bird sounds in the middle of the video as well: the Spurwing Geese were flying over while I was out there.
