And that would be far too short. Turn your volume up and listen….

This clip above was taken yesterday at the RSPB Ynyshir nature reserve in Wales. I was standing there trying to think how I could describe the beauty of the birdsong. And then I thought I don’t have to, I can record it instead and let the birds sing for themselves. Here’s another.

For lots of reasons we didn’t explore the whole reserve, but it does have possibly the biggest bird feeder I’ve ever seen so we sat on a bench and watched the birds come to us.

  1. Yes, I agree with you…lucky birds don’t know they are tweeting!! Here in Australia, the little birds tweet much more in the garden during winter, in summer the big noisy (but lovely) birds like cockatoos take over. I enjoyed looking through your garden posts as we have just returned from Italy.
