Nature sounds – Forest dawn chorus in Scotland

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

Beautiful birdsong early in the morning at a coniferous forest in the remote parts of Scotland. Birds start singing very early in spring this far north, around 3 am. A few hours later the dawn chorus is in full swing, with species like Robin, Blackbird, Song thrush, Wren, Goldcrest and many others singing. Their calls reverberate around the forest floor creating beautiful and long echoes. Soft wind in the trees adds a beautiful backdrop to the birdsong.
