What’s that bird?

This website aims to help you identify British bird songs and calls. Check out the ‘Listen’ pages to hear the recordings

If you’ve heard a bird and can’t find it on this website, try to record it on a mobile phone and email it to me at enquiries@learnbirdsongs.co.uk.

Over time, I plan to increase the range of vocalisations on the site, and offers of good recordings to add to the collection are much appreciated!

It’s much easier to identify birds if you know what they sound like. With practice, most people can learn to recognise at least the more common songs and calls. New species and less frequent vocalisations then stand out as being ‘different’, making country walks and even time in the back garden much more interesting and rewarding.
