After many searches in quite a few places at long last, we found this bird. It was first at a distance uphill when we heard it calling, eventually after 45 min it came closer. Photos to be uploaded later.

Calls at 0:5 s, 0:23 s and 0:47 s. Drumming less obvious (very soft) at 0:20 s, 0:31 s and 0:39 s.
