Eastern Bird calls

Then you should buy "Calls of Eastern Vagrants" by Hannu Jännes!

There is also a nice CD offered by Dutchbirding Association:

Best wishes
Tom

" Calls of Eastern Vagrants " is a must have cd. It has been my "in car entertainment" all autumn. It doesn't include warbler songs, but then they are superfluous in a western european setting in autumn.

From what I remember, the last one I heard, in Caernarvon, was doing a good impression of a Pied Wagtail. "Chu-ee"

To me, the usual call sounds like a Phyllosc doing an impression of a Spotted Redshank: 'chu-it'. Also commonly give a call like a more forceful Chiffchaff: 'hwitt'.

With Humes,Dusky,Pallass's and Paddyfield all being recorded in Lothian today as well as Yellow Browed earlier in the week perhaps I MUST get this CD.

Worth every penny. Nobody interested in finding eastern birds should be without it. Memorise that Blue Robin call!
