hello, I live on the edge of a town, very close to a large wooded area and I’ve started hearing a new bird in the evening. I haven’t spotted it yet so identifying it is quite difficult! It’s a very short squeeking sound, reminds me of attempting to pump up an air bed by hand!
It was similar to a European Green Woodpecker, but not quite the same.
