Dawn chorus in Hockley Woods, B, 2016
The second of two recordings (the first is here).
After making our way back east to the middle of the woods we found a clearing with a large tree that had fallen over and decided to sit on the log whilst making another recording. Sitting still for longer gives creatures more time to adjust to you being there, and more encouragement to go about their regular activities. If you can afford the time, the rewards can be great.
We sat here for probably 10 minutes, which is not really long enough, but we did see the behind of a fallow deer running in the distance. There were more birds here and some of them were very close, although I am unable to identify them with my poor ornithology skills.
Can you shed any light on the species recorded? Comment below.
