    Heard this yesterday evening. Can't identify it app said it's a robin but it's way too loud

    The last note is a Robin, not sure about the squeal at the start.

    Perhaps it does depend on your search engine, I have no idea, it's not something I've ever had an issue with. But then, I've always used Google or Google Chrome. However, as Woodchat says, once you've found it, save it as a favourite

    Madeira Pelagic Bird (long shot...)

    Seems to be all dark, which would be Bulwer's. I did much the same sort of trip many years ago & saw 2-3 Bulwer's. Tapered/ pointed tail was a good ID pointer.

    Unknown bird in garage UK

    Also, it may have fluffed up its feathers due to it being cold and damp. This can give the effect of a larger bird.
