"Gekkering" explained

This was good to listen to, because some of the sounds would be disconcerting to hear in a woods if you didn't know what was making them.

I had to look up the word gekker:
"Coined by Scottish zoologist and conservationist David Macdonald in the 1970s, who said in 2014 of gekkering: "I believe it comes from the German word gekkern, and I adapted it, and is probably onomatopoeic".
