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. Wonderful clear sightings with bins as it was still light when they became active. 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.
