Did you by chance record the call. If so I can probably help if I can hear
it. From what you have described it does not sound like a Crake call - given
it was hidden in a small shrub. The description also does not fit any Crake
call I have in my sound library.

coming from a small raodside swamp. It sounded like a "coughing two syllable
call". Would anyone have a clue what it might have been? Whatever was making
this call, was hidden in some small shrub. My guess is that it may have been
some variation in the call of one of the crakes.
