Was walking on the hills south of Llangollen and saw a pair of birds I have never seen before
black body 
Wings had white tips
Bird looked like a swift
Loud screaching sounds
they flew like swifts and shaped like a swift but larger.  
I got the feeling they may have had a nest in the field as they where very protective 
Has anyone got any idea what these birds are

Your post puzzled me for months until I recalled a similar event from fifty years ago in Cumbria. I think what you saw could  be a pair of nightjars showing typical  behaviour and with a description that might fit. They do lay their eggs on the ground but  in a field?
