Mew -- if you get a chance go peek when you hear -- jays or rooks or whatever kinds of birds like that, that live near -- making a big ruckus in the day. I have found hawks, raccoons and great horned owls that way. (And occasionally just some jays who have it in for one another.)
Hmmm, yes, I do look at 'disturbances' - and sometimes see a buzzard, sparrrowhawk or a kestrel. But the rooks, jackdaws and woodpigeons in these big trees opposite us seem to make a lot of noise most of the day! Not to mention the 30+ sparrows in our little garden who compete with them all day too
. Oh, and those big trees are in the grounds of our high school (1300 pupils, though admittedly they are quiet all day, till school ends....). A 'peaceful' English village??
At least the village duckpond is relatively quiet!
