Bird call ID - German/Dutch border (1 Viewer)

Hi,

I heard this call (not the chiffchaff) on May 13th close to the German/Dutch Border west of Mönchengladbach. The bird was located somewhere on the other side of a hedge, habitat was mixture of fields and forrest. I am sure it's a common bird but I just can't nail the ID. Can anyone help me?

Thanks
David

I think it is a young Tawny Owl. I am certain I've heard this odd call before!
I was referring to the “repeat” notes of the Song Thrush, yes there are a couple of separate “hoot” notes, along with Chiffchaff and what sounds like Great Spotted Woodpecker as the “intro” to this morning chorus.

There is indeed a Song Thrush (most clearly at the end), but I assumed that was not what David was after.

Yes, I was referring to the young Tawny Owl begging calls. At least that's what I now think it is after comparing it to some xeno-canto recordings.

Thanks everyone!
