Bird song to relax to

Recorded at RSPB Dinas (Carmarthenshire), it's impossible to escape the sound of water here, for crystal clear waters gush and tumble down the valley, and sheep bleat from the hillsides. Recorded in mid-May at dawn, we think this track is great to relax to.

Who's singing?

A special mix of voices particular to these western upland woods is in full swing. The spinning coin song of the wood warbler (3") rings out, joined by the wistful cascade of the willow warbler (9"). The wood warbler switches to his sweet 'pew pew pew' song (12"), and a pied flycatcher starts his 'step exercise' simple song (21"). A great spotted woodpecker drums on a dead branch (37"), before a garden warbler starts to sing with verses as babbling as the brook nearby (39"). A grey wagtail flies up from the water's edge with a sharp 'zit zit' call to be heard over the water (52").

Bird song for workouts

Recorded at RSPB Lakenheath in Suffolk, it's hard to believe that Lakenheath was, until 20 years ago, carrot fields. The now re-created fen stretches for miles along the river, providing a wondeful wilderness. This recording was captured on an early May evening. With such funky rhythms, we think this track would make a great addition to a high-energy playlist - ideal for London Marathon training.

Who's singing?

A sedge warbler is already delivering his jazzy percussive song from within the reeds, chuntering away unseen, when another joins him, much closer this time (3"). They continue almost without pause, experimenting with their complex churring rhythms. A male mallard gives his muffled 'raab' quack from a pool within the reeds (9"). A blackbird in an alder tree above offers up some pure melodic verses (19"), with a Cetti's warbler which dares to interject with his explosive short verse (22"). A whitethroat sing some short, scratchy verses (31"), with a cuckoo adding some end of day simplicity to the mix (37"). A moorhen gives a startled 'brook' call (52") with another more distant Cetti's warbler outburst (57").
