Let Nature Sing! Garden birdsong special compilation

Last summer we made history as we got birdsong into the UK music top twenty with our single Let Nature Sing!

Our very own Adrian Thomas was one of the musical maestros behind the success of Let Nature Sing. To celebrate the Big Garden Birdwatch Adrian has produced a special track of garden birdsong. Take a listen and let your spirits soar!
