Heard today

...a short while ago from my garden.  What are these birds competing with the aeroplanes?

I'm going to guess at mostly blackbird for the first. I'll be chuffed if it is.

I don't know the answers, by the way, as I know little about birds and couldn't see any at the time of recording.  We do indeed get blackbirds round here, though.

At least three makes of birds are captured on the clips, including geese, and gulls briefly.  I don't know what models.

The first one is a blackbird, and partway through it's song it's joined by a song thrush.  A duet!

The second one begins with a blackbird, with geese on the chorus a little way in.  The blackbird sings again as the aeroplane starts descending.  There's a blue tit's alarm call just after that.  Then some intermittent blackbird.

The tit continues to alarm throughout after that, on and off.

Very atmospheric Biggsy!

You are lucky to have a thrush.  Toytown folk garden with slug pellets  :(

Thanks for the great info, Lindagordinho!

Next question: what are they saying exactly?  :D
