Nightjars in Cann Woods

A group of about twenty from the Plymouth Local Branch enjoyed a late night foray into Cann Woods at Plympton.  Despite slightly less than perfect conditions, it was a little overcast and the moon had not yet risen, the group had good if brief views of at least 4 Nightjars, with a total of 10 heard churring, ke-wiking, gurgling or wing-clapping throughout the wood.  A Cuckoo was heard calling near the fort.
