Bird call

Observed: 5th June 2013 By: Bob Spode
Local landscape; not in June!
Description:

I heard a new ( to me ) bird call. It was the same call repeated with a few seconds between. I can best describe it as a Poowee ascending. My impression was of a medium-sized rather than a small bird. Any suggestions?

Have you tried the RSPB site where you can listen to the bird song and calls?

Mystery bird call

The nearest tone I have found on the RSPB site is the hoopoe, but the call I heard was distinctly ascending. We have heard it several times now and it always stands out from the usual.Perhaps more poo-oo than poo-ee.
Thanks for your feedback.
