Dawn Chorus

Phil Riddett

A sound portrait of a British woodland at sunrise.

The spring dawn chorus in Britain is one of the most celebrated and uplifting sounds in the natural world. Five stereo ambient recordings capture the magical awakening of bird-life at daybreak in the British countryside. No announcements interrupt the sequences.

  • the magic of a Sussex woodland unfolds at dawn
  • thrushes, warblers, wrens and many other woodland birds
  • early morning in the New Forest
  • dawn over a Dartmoor landscape in May.
