I heard an unusual bird a couple of mornings ago and wondered if anyone might have any ideas whatsoever.
It's call seemed to consist of three identical notes repeated every 5-10 seconds - occasionally it would put in a fourth note (or part of). It was very bright and clear and carried over 100 yards (if not more). It wasn't there yesterday. Although I am no expert on bird calls I know that I have never heard anything like it before
I heard it for at least 10 minutes but someone else said it had been calling all morning - as it was at 8am I am not sure exactly how long that was! Unfortunately I had nothing to record it with.
If anyone can give any suggestions I can go to my bird sounds CD and have a listen.
