I managed to get a short recording of the bird I have been hearing on many early morning walks. This morning I saw it, in fact a pair flying together. It was definitely singing whilst in flight and is about Blackbird size. Unfortunately it was too fast and too far away to see as anything more than a greyish bird shape in the early morning light.
I tried uploading my audio file to eSnips where I have stored the odd one in the past only for the site to keep rejecting it as a possible infringement of copyright. Goodness know what sort of stupid algorithm they use for checking when a personal file is rejected. So far I haven't found a replacement free storage site to move my files and make them easily accessible in Blogger. Any suggestions?
I have created a video file and added the bird song clip to a still photo so it can be stored and viewed on YouTube. The song I can't identify is in the distance behind the chatter of the local House Sparrows.
It is probably a very common bird but as yet I haven't found an example audio file on the net which comes near this song.
