The following Te Papa blog contains an embedded sound file of a mystery bird call recorded at night on Secretary Island in March last year.
As explained in the blog, I suspected the call to be from a grey-backed storm petrel chick. However, a visit to the site in February this year did not result in any nests being found.
The species making the call remains a mystery, and I am hoping that publishing the sound file will lead to some suggestions:
General birdwatching discussion, help with bird identification, and all other things relating to wild birds and birding in NZ that don't fit in one of the other forums.

I can see (hear?) why everyone had trouble with that call. Very mysterious!
