Hello again, I recorded 30s of audio stood on the shore of Loch Lomond next to a small wooded area. What can you identify?
Off the point but still relevant, I was so surprised when I spotted a beautiful jay in a tree but then heard it call out to another one nearby. I honestly thought it was someone screaming.Loch Lomond.m4a
Lots of bird, and lapping water.
Yes, jay can sound like they're screaming. Have a listen to the Bird songs and calls web page on the following link, and go through the tabs for the various calls etc:
I may have given you the link to British-birdsongs.uk before, if not, bookmark it, its not exhaustive, but it will guide.

In reply to Dave - CH:
I mainly heard goldcrest, thrushes, noisy hooded crows and chaffinches when I stood there. I followed the goldcrest around and finally got an okay photo of one, I always struggled to get a photo since they’re so erratic.

Could this be a vertical and somewhat blurry goldcrest? Saw it this morning and I have a few photos of the empty space where it had been just before I clicked!
