Warbling

The strange birdsong we heard a few nights ago is back … so we got a recording.  Its a haunting churring sound that is difficult to locate, and almost hurts the ears as you get closer.

We are 99% certain its a Grasshopper Warbler  (Locustella naevia), a summer visitor and a rare Red List species.
