Swamp at the Edge of a River

Recordist: Jan Brelih
Krka National Park, Croatia
Recommended charity: Zelena Akcija


In the midst of Croatia’s dry and rugged landscapes, there is a series of gorges through which freshwater flows from Dinaric Alps to the Adriatic Sea. We are at the edge of a river inside the flooded forest, where parts of it have become swampy. There is an unusual, organic sound of air bubbles emerging from a water source hidden beneath a layer of fallen leaves. In the background, you can hear some birds becoming increasingly active towards the end after sunset.
