Thread: Sika Whistling

  1. #1

    Sika Whistling

    Was up in the forest today & a sika was whistling away quite merrily. This is the first one I've heard this year. (we don't have very many around here). -- Great to hear them - so wild & intense!!

    Anyone else hearing them currently?

    Hi Yorric,

    Yes, hearing them infrequently over here too.

    My dogs love it, and love waking me up at all hours to tell me too!

    Spend a couple of nights/mornings a week foxing and management culling with an ex-Novar keeper. I've heard a lot of old stories set on that ground!

    Never been lucky enough to see one let alone hear one whistling

    Swarovski the first time you hear them whistling is a bit eerie and you won't forget it Atb Tom
