I'd be very grateful if someone could identify this birdsong:
Thanks for listening!

Best I can come up with is the "wittering" call of a Little Grebe. However I've never heard one make short calls in quick succession like that. Here's what they normally sound like.

It always helps if you say where (roughly) you heard it and what the habitat was like.

I'm far from an expert, I've not even got to the novice stage!
My first thoughts was one of the tit family. With you being near woodland, made me think possibly long tail tit alarm call.
If not that, have a listen around the British Bird Songs site. They're not all exact, but may give you some idea.

Like TJ i thought at first it was a Little Grebe but listening again I don't think so but I've not really got a better suggestion unless it is one of the 30 odd Great Tit songs.
