I've checked other options and I can't find something else that fits exactly. I have lots og yellow legged gulls (the only gull in my area), very noisy the whole night, but they don't fit, and it's the first time I've recorded a call like this since I am recording for 2 monts ago.

I would like to know if there is another option for this call so I can discard Eurasian Bittern.

Thank you all.
