Please would someone help me with the identification of this bird call ( https://soundcloud.com/georg-waechter-z ... ed-call1-2 ). Sorry audio quality not very good and needs to be turned right up. Taken in East London SA, woodland estuary area, heard mainly early evening and night.

I'll have a listen tonight with headphones... My phone speaker is not great for reproducing soft sounds... :))

Cheers,
Gordon

Listening on my phone, not the best quality but I would day it's actually not a bird but a dassie. Very common in the East London area, where abouts did you record this? Along the Nahoon river possibly, Beacon Bay or Bonnie Doon?

Many thanks for feedback, its been intriguing me for some time now. So rock dassie as opposed to tree dassie? Heard around Beacon Bay and Nahoon close to river.

Rock Dassie is very common in the area but I believe that Tree Dassie is also a possibility although quite rare.

I suppose either is possible and their calls are hugely varied so it could be either.
