comment How can you prevent kids getting lost at night while camping?
To avoid strangulation I think it should be made clear that, if you are asking children to wear whistles round their neck, they must not do this when they are sleeping and any cord must have a friable link.

@RussellSteen I voted to close as I don't feel identifying bird calls from recordings is on-topic for this site.
