Sound Escape 6: the gentle chatter of house sparrows and dunnocks in a Gower hedgerow

Listen on

Episode notes

Welcome to our latest Sound Escape, a chance to relax to the calming sounds of nature. In this episode, we’re pausing beside a hedgerow on the edge of a small field in Gower, South Wales. It’s a bitterly cold and overcast Sunday morning but the house sparrows and hedge sparrows (dunnocks) are busily chatting at the beginning of their nesting season.   So sit back and be transported into the delightful soundscapes of spring. Recorded and presented by Hannah Tribe.
