Forest and nature sounds – Dawn chorus in Scotland

Glen Tanar National Nature Reserve
Recordist: George Vlad
Habitat: Temperate forest
Recommended Charity: Scottish Wildlife Trust

Scottish summer dawn choruses like this one last long into the morning and feature beautifully exuberant birdsong. There’s a multitude of birds singing at various distances which creates a balanced mix of foreground, mid and background layers. There’s a faint but constant buzzing sound coming from a gorse bush nearby where a variety of insects are feasting on nectar.
