 Sonogram of Dotterel song

Båtsfjordfjellet, Finnmark, Norway  70° 31' 57.7" N  29° 17' 39.6" E  23 June 2019

Territorial song/advertising call from snow-covered scree and boulder fields on mountain slope.

Song by female composed of a single element repeated continuously, at four times per second, in flight over a wide area. Single up-slurred element (range 2.27-3.51 Khz) sounds not unlike a male Teal-like peep, with a slight wobble/levelling out in the middle.
