Great Grey Shrike - Lanius excubitor Livon 2017-10-21 Lümanda vald, Saaremaa, Saare (Estonia) (0 m) call, song, sub song -

Calls and (sub)song of an unknown and unseen bird. Clearly a bigger bird. Some parts remind me of Fieldfare (not the one in the background) but I think it could be a Jay. Sometime I wonder if it are two birds. I have missed one or two of the strange calls at the start. No matching recording found.

Slightly amplified and filtered. Original intervals kept.

Recorded from webcam Beaver (Kobras), Lümanda vald, Saaremaa, Estonia.

Mystery solved. See forum.
