Sorry KK the vid does not seem to have anything on it and only lasts a second m others may have more luck.A long single note whistle may be Starling as they make a variety of sounds
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can

I've heard, KK, that it's notoriously difficult to tell helpful Gibbons from unhelpful Gibbons in the field.
Hopefully more help is on the way...

Depends how loud the whistle is!
This is a duplication of another thread Bird song identificatio [https://community.rspb.org.uk/chat/f/hello/278730/bird-song-identificatio], which I'll share my, possibly unhelpful reply.
It sounds almost like a curlew flight call, but the immediate surroundings in the clip don't match a curlews normal habitat.
You could try the following link, noting what the habitat is around the area in question is. https://www.british-birdsongs.uk/
