We never ruled out the possibility that the OP recorded the cheep cheep of a chick. A baby who's voice is different from the adults. Last year I had
a nest of robins in a big old azalea bush outside my living room window and the babies were louder, higher pitched and more demanding than the sound
of the adults.
It was pretty amazing because we could look right down into the nest.
From egg to bald little big eyed things to fledgling and gone. They changed over night sometimes they grew so fast.
Anyway could be a baby and that's why they don't recognize it.
It is refreshing to see you away from the USA political forums for once... Seeing a nicer, humane and more openly tolerant side of you Silly...
For information to all : Brit living in France for the past 30 years smack bang in the middle of the countryside although quite a few (too many) years
in the "city" and in the army during my younger days (but had to be done for personal reasons...) AND NO... I will not prove pics n stuff to
Back on topic : As an avid bird watcher for the past 50 or so years (as well as being a veterinarian surgeon with quite a few years experience in the
wild animal behaviour part of things throughout the world) and taking into account that the OP is from the UK I have wangled down the bird-song to one
of these two (I would say mainly the Plain warbler) :
The plain warbler :
A very plain warbler with no distinguishing features (a feature in itself!). It spends a lot of its time in the cover of trees and bushes and can be
more difficult to see than its relative, the blackcap. Despite its name it is not really a garden bird, except in mature gardens next to woods. Its
song is similar to that of a blackcap, but has longer mellow phrases.
Sylvia Warbler :
The Sylvia warblers are birds of scrub are perhaps the most visible of the warbler groups, at least in Britain. More robust than the other warbler
groups they feed to a greater extent on fruit, particularly in autumn. They are also amongst the more colourful warblers, and are unusual in that the
sexes differ in plumage (the female being duller). The Hippolais warblers have a similar body structure, but their green colouration and foraging
habits more recalls the leaf warblers, but they are generally scarce visitors to Britain. (However not as scarce as they used to be).

All Warblers are part of the Wren family : Sylviidae (there are over 410 species all over the world)... take this info from a veterinary surgeon...
Otherwise, a nice recipe is to have them plucked, emptied and smoke dried (add Madras curry powder if you like) and then add them to the peanuts,
crisps and stuff when having an aperitive as they are pretty small when it comes to nibbling (but watch out for the bones)... Sorry, the French coming
out in me...
