Default Identify bird call help.

Hi everyone. I'd appreciate some help identifying this bird call.

I only hear it just after dusk and it seems to be coming from some trees near my house. Sometimes it seems as if there might be more than one source.

I've lived in my house for over 20years and this summer is the first time I've heard this call.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

PS. Please excuse the heavy breathing. My lungs aren't what they used to be.

I've honestly got no idea. Baby owl perhaps? Hopefully somebody will be along with the answer shortly!

You may be right about the owl.

It's the nearest I've found yet.
