Spring Bird Sounds from Brent Reservoir

Last weekend I was out before sunrise at Brent Reservoir in North London making sound recordings of as many species as possible. Listen to this file on SoundCloud which is a composite mix I've created from the better cuts from the morning. Species featured include Great Crested Grebe, Common Tern, Reed Warbler, Tufted Duck, Lesser Whitethroat, Garden Warbler, Blackcap, Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Moorhen and Mute Swan.

Stonechat Song

 European Stonechat (Saxicola rubicola) singing at La Janda, Andalucía, Spain

Territorial song uttered from telegraph wire in a largely treeless landscape.
