 Sonogram of Long-tailed Tit calls

River Thames, Purfleet, Essex, England  51 28' 52.62'' N  00 13' 56.11"' E  29 January 2023

Calls from a winter foraging flock of 10+ birds in sparse hawthorn scrub.

Two call types in this recording, probably both used in alarm as the flock passed through an exposed area:

[top] sirett phrase begining with brief high-pitched elements (6.2-8.9 kHz) followed by a lower-pitched dry rattle composed of a broadband trill of 5-9 elements (spanning 1.7-7.3 kHz).

[bottom] si-si-si-si phrases of varying length composed of up-and-downslurred elements (6.0 -7.5 kHz).
