26/03/18. The lovely frogs of Leighton Moss.

It’s springtime at Leighton Moss and this brings many things to enjoy – huge starling murmurations, elusive bitterns booming, and many other birds as well.  Indeed, it was the bitterns that brought me here yesterday evening.  But before I came across any bitterns I was entranced by the frogs.  Initially the sound is quite subtle and hard to pickup, especially given the road traffic noise and the very frequent overflight of aircraft at Leighton Moss.

This was recorded near the Lower Hide.  There are many acIMG_2849companists to the frogs’ performance including shrieking water rails, greylag geese, other geese, and the wind blowing through the enormous reedbeds that make this place so unique.
