Episode notes

Welcome to Sound Escapes, your chance to relax to the sounds of the British countryside no matter busy you are. In this episode, you're on a path rising up a steep-sided wooded valley in South Wales. The endless May rain has stopped and a male wood warbler is singing his extraordinary song from the emerald canopy of tangled oak trees. The air is fresh, the leaves are fresh and there is a sense that spring can begin again in earnest.
