Thanks, Tom. I just listened to the Horsfield's call -- but again, it's too fast, one whistle coming immediately upon the next. We're talking a big gap here, between whistles. Yes, I too was astonished to think of the Black-eared... Today I find that the Atlas does show one little dot for our area. But I'm not confidant in myself. I think, It MUST have been something else. Nevertheless, I was instantly alert to it as an unexpected sound.


Hi Judith,

Sounds a bit like Horsfield's Bronze-Cuckoo but they normally call
from a prominent perch, also Black-eared Cuckoo sound similar but are
more mournful though I'm not sure that the latter would come as close
to the coast as this.

You should be able to download Horsfield's from here (but I can't find
