Wetland bird call id request

Short, high pitched monotonous calls from near the edge of the wetland. It was a fine early afternoon and soon after I recorded this a pukeko appeared. But it doesn't sound like a typical pukeko call.

Pukeko with not much to say.

Thanks, any thoughts on another call early morning at another wetland in the area ? Longish recording with greenfinch, starling, spotted dove, mynah and repeated short calls I couldn't place. Plenty of pukekos around. The calls seemed to be from rushes in the wetland. I wondered about kingfisher.
