You would think living in a small village miles from a main road it would be quite. I was up early this morning and went outside with a coffee at 4:00am. The dawn chorus was deafening !
I think we are at peak dawn chorus at the moment.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Jan and I went to see our younger son on Friday. He lives in a very peaceful, rural spot a few miles north of Colchester. From his front room we could hear a blackcap, a song thrush, and quite a bit of more common stuff.
Bach without a doubt.

Nice idea Sam - being a bit technologically backward I'm not sure how to set about submitting something, there's no obvious mechanism there.

Listening to that immediately launched the finale of Beethoven's 6th symphony as my earworm for the morning!

Thanks Sam for having put me in touch - one of my recordings has just gone up!

That's fantastic. I could listen to that for hours. Your garden sounds idyllic.

I should probably note it's entirely likely I will listen to it for hours. I often put tracks like that on repeat while I'm writing -- my synaesthesia means I need to control what I can hear in order to focus, and this is absolutely perfect.

Last night while walking to a local eatery we heard what sounded like it might have been a male tawny owl in need of some cough lozenges. It did the 'whoo' but it was pretty scratchy as well.
Could have been a fox I suppose. Intrigued...
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

Could also have been someone from the eatery bringing their meal up in a hedge.....  How are you feeling today?
