unidentified sound in Ireland

Came back to our house after being out. Unpacking car into garage when I heard a strange sound. A whirring sound that seemed to have no direction. Sounded a bit like a washing machine on spin cycle but with a much deeper bass sound. At one point it was quite loud then it began to fade. I stood there trying to gather what direction it was coming from but couldn't figure it out. Called wife out of house but by the time she came out the sound was weakening away. It was a dry day cloudy there had been rain earlier. Our house is situated on a flight path have heard helicopters, propeller planes and Jets many times of various sizes and at various heights. We also live a couple of miles to two quarries but this was no lorry sound or explosives. We don't live close to water. We are in the countryside neighbors at a good distance. It wasn't farm machinery my uncle has a farm used to work on it in the summer. Since it happened I have been trying to rule it out in some way but I cannot find an explanation. I'm a software engineer used to detail I also have a passion for aircraft. After it happened I went walking around the fields but came across nothing. I feel a bit silly reporting this but just thought I should report it to someone.
