Nightjars at Hartland Forest
Two Nightjar flying from 9.50pm last night 30th May, and at least two more churring, they were in the first clearing as you walk down the track, much less wind than the next area.

No wing claps, they seemed to be gently flying around each other, one landing then the other coming back to reconnect before both back in the air, lots of vocal too.
