    The app, called Warblr, has more than 200 birds on its database and uses information from the British Trust for Ornithology.

    The user simply points their phone in the direction of any bird song they like the sound of.

    The app then records a short burst of it and produces a list of possible birds, ranked in order of likelihood. It is said to be up to 95 percent accurate.

    "Most people can't tell the difference between the song of a blackbird, robin and chaffinch. It's something I've always struggled with myself, which is why I felt there was need for this app," Warblr co-founder Florence Wilkinson, a marketing consultant from London, was quoted as saying.

    The app is available for download and can be purchased for 3.99 pounds.
