15. I feel certain that there must be a little-known bird called the irritating grunt, but it is so little-known that it is not mentioned anywhere!

Storm Petrel is on the right lines for 18 but it is more punnish / sounds like, as is the answer to 15

1   Burglarís activity    Robin
2   Brag    Crow
3   Scottish music maker on the beach   Sandpiper
4   Celestial heather    Starling
5   Bend the lamb's mother   Curlew
6   Scarlet leg   Red Shank
7   Twelfth of a foot harvest leftover    Chaffinch
8   17th Century architect   Wren
9   Put the lid on a Scottish party   Capercaille
10   Tell the cat to stop sleeping    Kittewake
11   Go around selling things     Hawk
12   Rock conversation    Stone Chat
13   Friendly dog     Wagtail
14   Noisy bees will do this    Buzzard
15   What tennis players do    
16   Scarlet beginning    Redstart
17   Insect with Tommy Cooperís hat     Pheasant
18   Sailor's hate this   
19   Caught a peace bringer    Collared Dove
20   Cricket bat wobbly singing     Willow Warbler
21   After me but before Kay    Jay
22   Secures Sunday roast    Skua
23   Airborne shenanigans   Skylark
24   Angry invoice    Crossbill
25   Meadow is just     Fieldfare
