Episode notes

Welcome to the first Sound Escape from BBC Countryfile Magazine – five minutes' blissful peace in the countryside as we wind down for the weekend. Every week, we'll upload some beautiful and relaxing sounds of nature. We will capture the spirit of the moment to give you a perfect audio snapshot of what's going on in the countryside right now. This week, we are escaping to a little wooded valley on the Gower Peninsula in South Wales to hear robins, mistle thrushes, great tits and a great spotted woodpecker proclaiming early spring. The sound of the sea blends with a gentle breeze in the treetops. Hannah Tribe is your host.
