Crazy bird call

Hi I was by a river today and heard a bird call lots of varied calls but it was definitely the same bird. Couldn’t spot it. It was bizarre! It repeated one call twice then did a different one straight after, then another and another all completely different. Any idea what it could be please? 

  • Very hard to say, any chance you can get a recording?

  • As Wendy says, very hard to say without a recording but wild guess would be ….    something like a Song Thrush who have repeat phrases -   did it sound anything like THIS  (you will find an audio recording on the page)     Or look at other members of the Thrush family like Blackbird.

    Yes very similar thank you so much! I went back to record it but it had stopped. I knew it wasn’t a blackbird but didn’t know it could be a thrush. Thanks for that it was really bugging me!

    Thanks Wendy but it had stopped when I went back!
