Nice to hear it.
I found the sound a bird, the nightjar (PC: nachtzwaluw, geitemelker) makes, it sounds like the sound we can hear on the cam, but I guess a toad sound is somewhat softer...like here.
Yes,this was song of nightjar (Caprimulgus europaeus)

Hello, Agatheb2k. I think your unknown animal may have been a raccoon dog.

We see raccoon dogs here fairly often, & in winter we see LOTS of raccoon dogs at the boar feeding cam! Sometimes 8 or 9 at a time. :rolleyes:

Yes because they are not native, I think they were imported into parts of Russia (from China?) to be raised for fur and then they escaped and spread. There are studies going to see how much danger they pose to native birds. And they carry and spread mange to the foxes.

(They are cute, though)
