I have just heard a corncrake calling in the fields beyond the house. The last corncrake in the actual garden here was in 79-80. There is a good drizzle going on but i am going out on the bike and going to try and get a good location and sound recording........yee ha the hunt is on....

(edit)...Soon tracked it down. It is calling like a trooper. Its in deep grass with a fenced off section of wet ground beside it. I couldnt see mutch in the dark but made some thirty second sound recordings. I will post some the morn but be warned watching a black screen to hear a corncrake repeatedly calling may well be taking you in to geeky birdy
