Heard a cuckoo this morning from home. We've lived here since 1996 and this is the first time we have actually heard one from here.  It's partly my fault for leaving the conservatory roof open overnight, but still a bird that seems to be scarce in North Hampshire.  It must have been on the Millfield, which is a street away from us.

Heard a cuckoo this morning. I think I have recorded it. I never knew you can get cuckoos in September, I suppose it is a juvenile one ready to go south for winter.
It is simpler than it looks.

A new one for me. On Monday night at about 9:30 there was a very strange noise overhead like that you make if you whirl a piece of plastic pipe around. The sound circled the village twice then was gone. I had to do a bit of searching but in the end it was revealed as a snipe. They normally make this noise in spring apparently but sometimes do it in autumn too.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

It's an amazing noise, isn't it?  I met it for the first time earlier this year.

Any ideas, out opening up chickens and getting wife's bike out shed about 50 minutes before first signs of sunrise and a bird was flying around. Making a loud call which the best way I can describe sounded like a child doing a bad monkey impression

I haven't heard the tawnies this winter. I hope they're still around  :-\

Yesterday we heard our first lark song of the year :)

I was unable to make that sound of anything.

Every night this week sheep bleating, they sound like they are in next doors garden. They are actually about 100 metres away but there is a dip between us and that field so we are actually about the same heights the sheep so they sound much closer.
I suspect they will all disappear at Easter.

What is that funny squeaking noise coming from outside? It's a snail crawling across the living room window  :o

Re snipe, drumming: outer two tail feathers are twisted sideways, the snipe dives, and it sounds a bit like a bullroarer.

Oddly, a great place to see and hear that is the amazing bird-filled lake outside Reykjavik's parliament building!
