A slightly warble, delivered in verses, with variations in pace and a wide range of pitching and phrasing; verses usually begin hesitantly with a medley of thin-voiced scratchy and buzzy notes and build in rhythm towards the end with clearer-toned, slightly flutey notes in recognisable motif.
The usual alarm call is a sharp, tongue-clicking 'tchk'.
