North East England, trying to figure out what kind of bird this is.
Apologies for the terrible recording, but it's the best we can do. It's been squeaking all day long and we can't figure out at all what it is.
Any help would be really appreciated, thanks!

There is a Wood Pigeon calling but I don't think that's what Jade is referring to.If you listen carefully there is a persistent squeaky call. I've tried to reduce the background noise and amplify it somewhat - not very successfully but you can hear the call.

The usual suspect in these cases is the so called rain song of a Chaffinch but it's difficult to be sure in this case

Wendy Barrter has got a really good video of one calling and I'm sure she will post it if she sees this post.
Of course it may be something completely different but hard to know
