Nature's Voice

Nature's voice podcast

Duration: 15 to 20 minutes

Love nature? You'll love Nature's Voice, our award-winning podcast. Each month we'll bring you features, interviews and news of birds and wildlife, from back gardens to the Sumatran rainforest. If you can't get enough, try dipping into our back catalogue. We'll take you soaring with birds of prey, look back over 30 years of Big Garden Birdwatch, offer wildlife gardening advice and hear from celebrity wildlife lovers like Bill Oddie and Kate Humble. To make sure you get each new edition as soon as it’s published, why not become a subscriber? It's free and simple!

Please note: As of Oct 2014 we are focusing our limited resources on producing podcasts with more of the stuff you - our listeners - enjoy. This means fewer podcasts will be produced so in some months no podcast will be published, but we hope to produce nine each year.

We'd love to hear what you think of Nature's Voice. E-mail:

A night time adventure and the Big Wild Sleep Out

Published: Thu, 30 Jun 201. File size: 22.2Mb.

This year’s Big Wild Sleepout is upon us and on this edition of Nature’s Voice we go on a night time adventure at RSPB Pulborough Brooks Nature Reserve. We’re on the trail of moths and bats – creatures you may well hear in your own garden if you take part in the Big Wild Sleepout over the last weekend of July. Jane Markham also speaks to the RSPB’s Paul Birmingham about why it’s become such a popular event and why it’s so important to reconnect with nature.
