[There appear to be 17 sets of "tick-it" calls, which are presumably given as a male advertising call (following BNA), but this recording is so busy that it is difficult to be certain. Quality added (3-2 - this recording is so busy that it is difficult to differentiate the calls given by the target bird) - CAM - 8 April 2005]
