check out the 1st video, from 4:00 to 4:15. Whatever happened to the two "inner" lights? They disappeared. If these lights are mounted on a crane boom, working at night, why shut two of them off?
take a picture of this area during the day and post it online tomorrow

Could well be a crane. But I think this is fake or been altered . Big give away is the bird chirping. Too loud and wrong time of day and year. Lots of fake videos add bird or more often dog sounds in an attempt to make the video look more authentic. I'm thinking the original audio has been replaced possibly because of give away construction sounds. I also think CGI has been used to take out the crane boom just leaving the lights that are real and look real.
. Other disturbances, like a loud noise or movement, can also start birds singing in the night.

Of course, the way it's being operated (if it is a crane) suggests maybe a bit of a cowboy construction, I don't know what you'd call it. Turn up and do the job quickly. And in some cases some cranes don't need the red light on top or to post a NOTAM (if under 150ft tall I think it is).
Point being, I'm not convinced right now that this is even in Basingstoke itself. Nothing out there to back up that it is. A crane NOTAM elsewhere might lead someone to the actual location. Ergo, it's currently only "Basingstoke" because the witness wrote that, but didn't provide any evidence nor has anyone else seemingly done so. Might be say, a good way to avoid people looking into a NOTAM'd crane in Essex, eh
Yes but this doesn't sound right to me. Lived in UK all my life know the sounds of birds and times and seasons you hear them. This is added I'm sure of it.
In the milder areas where some birds stay year round, the resident male remains in his breeding territory, singing intermittently
