Contrary to popular opinion, Nightingale is not the only bird that sings at night. In fact, due to it's recent decline, you are more likely to hear other birds singing after dark. This video illustrates the difference in song between the four most common 'Night Singers' - Robin, Blackbird, Song Thrush and of course, Nightingale.
