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?

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.
