    Robin Song from the BBC Sound Effects Library?


    Hi, so I'm preparing a short film for A-Level Media Studies, featuring stop-motion animated segments, one sample I've been looking for a very long time is the sound of a robin song. In case you don't know, this sample became EXTREMELY common after the introduction of digital sound mixing in the UK in the early 1990's.

    It was used in many UK children's shows like Postman Pat, (a show which relied extensively on BBC samples), Bob the Builder, any series produced by Cosgrove Hall Films after 1993, and much, much more. I expect the sample comes from the BBC library, (which was made available for free WAV download last April), as I heard a robin song that sounded very similar, but had more a reverb to it, the one I'm looking for I can't seem to find, unless someone else happens to know where it originated from, here's a sample;
