The Nightingale and few Eurasian Coots

Lussat, France
I arrived a bit before 5:00 am at the Etang des Landes and a nightingale in a bush is already singing as it was not fierce I could settle the microphones very close. I couldn’t see it however as it was still dark. In the background, among others, a few Eurasian Coots calling intermittently. This recording ends when the nightingale changes location.
