Mystery bird?

Todnnbird0790 by Weedons World
I was making a crude recording of the chirping Toads in our pond when a louder noise came through at c.11 seconds. It called a few times more as it seemingly flew off into the distance. I surmise, therefore that it was a bird. But which species? Moorhen? Lapwing? Something else?

Please comment if you have an idea what is is to help me out here.

After all, it could mean a garden tick!

I now think this is a Coot.
