If you allow for some hyperbole (ie. the call might stampede a flighty
correspondent but be largely ignored by ruminating cattle), I'd be nearly
prepared to put money on it being a Bush Stone-curlew call being described
there.  Surely the NP call isn't a million miles from a GP call from what
has been suggested so far.
