I have just returned from over a month in Perthshire.
I heard a bird calling in flight at night quite a few times.

It was late ( after 11 pm ) in June when I heard this bird on different nights.

The call was loud & very clear, just like a Toad calling loudly.

Can anyone suggest what bird it would be please

Hi

I am far from an expert, but your description triggered a memory of something I had seen on the web quite recently.

Might be worth looking at the details for a Capercaillie - not seen much, quite elusive, but does have a very distinctive croak and native to the scottish moorlands.

Good luck with your investigations

Mike
