Sitting in the hide at Tindale Tarn around 6:30am. Lots of interesting sounds. Here are three short clips.
- Wind in reeds; a warbler – I’m not sure which one; goldeneye; crow
- Curlew; warbler, crow; pheasant; goldeneye; lapwing;
- Grebes splashing/calling (later in the clip); frogs; woodpecker; curlew; woodpigeon; goldeneye
I think my favourite (excluding the curlew) is the goldeneye with its short raspy two note call. It reminded me, just a little, of the corncrake. But this call is very short … two quick tones; then silence and then resumes…
