First Light at Fogg Dam

Fogg Dam, NT, Australia

A range of bird species can be heard – forest-dwelling birds herald the dawn while nocturnal Large-tailed Nightjars make their ‘chopping’ calls in the dim light. Waterbirds such as Magpie Geese and Whistling Ducks fly over the forest toward the wetland and the gurgling territorial calls of Orange-footed Scrubfowl can occasionally heard in the distance. is a completely free streaming service of 700+ nature sounds from around the world, offering natural soundscapes and guided meditations for people who wish to listen to nature, relax, and become more connected.
