Am sure I should know this one but can't think of it. I have somewhat cut down a few of the sections between the calls to reduce the amount of chiffchaff and robin.

Though I agree Great Tit makes a lot of odd noises too!

I agree with Rob, this is likely to be a marsh tit. Both species vary their songs, but great tit always has a 2-note song, although they change the notes and pattern so they never sound the same as the last one you heard. This song is a repetition of one note, so not a great tit.

Can't open these links

Every time I click on this link it wont open the page? Do you have to become a member of the site or do I need some software or other?

Just go out there and do it!!!

You might need other

You might need other software, its a .mp3 file, most browsers can open and play this type of sound file since its now the most common one. But there is a chance it might ask for an additional piece of free software if it can't open it directly. On firefox it opens and plays automatically for me but on IE8 it asks for additional software which it then automatically uses to open and play the file.
