Wildlife Sound recordist Gary Moore has set me a new challenge. Can you guess what it is?

Can you guess what is making this sound?

We'll let you know on this afternoon's programme, at 3pm on BBC Two. We'll also post the answer on this blog.

UPDATED: Very trickyone, but well done to everyone who got it right, its the kingfisher chicks.

    It's very similar to a nightjar... although I'm not too sure. Probably not corncrake, or kingfisher chick either... I'll go with nightjar

    [Personal details removed by Moderator]Hi,
    I run a Gardening Club at in Aylesbury,. We felt blessed to have a duck nest near our pond this year. The children watched with great fascination as this wonderful mum sat on her nest all day and left rarely,. We avoided too much noise near the pond and the children were so excited about the 10 eggs hatching (the eggs could just be seen from a window above when the mother left for short periods). How devastated we were to see on the last day before Half Term that the nest was empty. No mum, no chicks NOT EVEN A PIECE OF SHELL LEFT AS EVIDENCE. What do you think happened? We are all upset and mystified as everything looked so good for this nest and the female.
    Could it have been a fox - although it was in a courtyard fenced in? We also have a pair of Kites who circle regularly over our school. Could it have been them? Or could it have been a cat? So many suggestions but no real answers.
    Please help.

    MANY THANKS.

    Great quiz Gary. Had me stumped. Just a quick question- WHERE ARE THE GREAT TITS? They should be on Webcam 4. Is this a way of making sure we all tune in tonight for the update?
