Rainforest sounds – calm morning at riverbed in the Borneo jungle
Recordist: George VladLahad Datu, Sabah, Malaysia
Recommended charity: Tabin Wildlife Reserve
It’s early morning at a dry riverbed in the Borneo rainforest. The soundscape is thick and piercing but not too busy. Gentle fog drip creates a subtle drawn-out rhythm while the calls of cicadas, katydids and other insects provide a monotonous backdrop. Tree frogs are winding down their night calls with bird calls slowly taking their place in the frequency spectrum.
