Found the coolest app for analysing birdsong called BirdNET from The Cornell Lab of Ornithology @cornellbirds. Record the birdsong and then select the section you want analysed:

Select the bit of the sound you want to analyse

And then click the Analyse button and it tells you what the bird is:

Results are quick even out in the field

I have very limited knowledge of birdsong so it’s fantastic to find out what song belongs to which bird. Chiffchaff, Great Tit and Human were all verified today 🙂

Oh, and check out their live demo, it is brilliant!
