I have just got an audio recorder and been experimenting with taking some field recordings but alas my identification skills are not quite up to scratch. In most cases I just check with the various CDs or computer programs I have but there are three that I am not able to identify with any real certainly (well I think I might know one), they only sound vaguely like the recordings I have and I was hoping that I could trouble some members for 5 minutes of their time to have a listen and see if you could help or point me towards someone who might know.
I’ve uploaded them to the Soundcloud website so you or anyone else hopefully can easily listen to them. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. All were recorded at the Fowlmere RSPB reserve near Cambridge, first thing this morning (7th May)
The first recording is Fowlmere (07-05-12 - 0516) taken by the side of the reedbeds and the bird was definitely inside them, small but well hidden. This is the only one I think might know, well my guess is a Reed Warbler but I am not sure.
The second recording is Fowlmere (07-05-12 - 0519) taken by the a little bit away from the reedbeds in a tree. No sign of anything to help with identification. Seems to sit somewhere to my untrained ear between a Nightingale (very unlikely) and a Blackcap (more likely but less like the recordings I have)
The last one is Fowlmere (07-05-12 - 0531) taken again the a little bit away from the reedbeds in a tree. No sign of anything to help with identification.
Any thoughts or help would be most appreciated. Thanks
