An unusual call or song from a male Stonechat (Saxicola torquata}. The calls can be likened to those of a Common Sandpiper.
Actually for anyone interested, there is a Skylark in the background too. I came across this Stonechat the first time and it was making sounds like a Green Sandpiper and on this occasion more like a Common Sandpiper.
Really good - I have never heard this from a Stonechat, only the "rattling pebbles" call, and at first I thought it was a skylark in the background until I listened more closely. Great upload.
