Sound Escape 24: sit back and relax to the sleepy hum and buzz of a midsummer meadow

Listen on

Episode notes

Chill out to the hum and buzz of a summer meadow. In Sound Escape 24, you find yourself waist deep in glorious midsummer wildflowers in a meadow in the Gwent Levels in South Wales. Crickets and grasshoppers chirrup and sing, bees bumble by, while blackcaps, chiffchaffs and a reed bunting sing from the nearby hedges. A lazy aeroplane dones overhead. Recorded by Fergus Collins and presented by Hannah Tribe.
