In reply to KatherineR:
Great. Thank you. That's a long whistle (without looking at the YouTube post, about three or more seconds).
Not something I remember hearing.
You say you've heard it in several places. Do you remember when (times of day) and where (so smarter posters than me can imagine the habitat)?
(Congratulations to your partner by the way; a very detailed impersonation that.)
Best regards -
I love the sounds of birds. It's so soothing and relaxing to sit in my backyard early in the morning and hear them.
KatherineR said:Hi Mike, My partner has done an imitation of the sound because I don't know if I'll be prepared next time I hear it! Here's the clip: https://youtu.be/VmyoxBkO-LA Any ideas?
Sadly, I'm useless at bird calls, I think the RSPB did have a bird song identification page, but that doesn't seem to be available, if they did, my memory isn't what it used to be (it's called getting old )
But there are a few others out there, perhaps trying some of those might help.
