Does anyone know which bird this is? Heard often in East Midland town garden (lots of big trees) this summer. (sorry about the quality of the recording)
It sounds a bit like a honking or soft "awk awk awk" - definitely not a sqwark - softer and more melodic, It seems to perch high up in tall trees and, from what we can see, might be a large dark feathered bird....
