Atlantic Gannet


Geoff Sample

The songbirds of Britain and northern Europe have always captured people's musical imagination, whether it be the melodic phrasing of the Blackbird or the scatty bubbling soliloquies of the Garden Warbler. In a previous era most households would keep a few local birds, often finches, in a cage around the house as much for the aural candy as for their looks. Let the birds fly free and listen instead to these stunning sound portraits of favourite British and north European songbirds at their best; including Blackbird, Song Thrush, Nightingale, Robin, Marsh Warbler, Blackcap, Willow Warbler, Golden Oriole, Skylark, Woodlark, Linnet and Dipper. 73 min.
