Dare you stand out in your garden as darkness falls and listen… what would you hear? Could something out there be calling you… or could it be warning you off! How can you tell the difference?
Can you identify the sounds of the night? Hands up I can’t and I could do with your help. Perhaps you could turn up the volume in your speakers to hear the short clip below. Keep listening to the end as it gets almost tuneful then. I’d really love to know what this is…
My first guess is a bird but maybe I’m wrong. I went through all the audio clips on the RSPB website listening to the most likely suspects but I’m at a complete loss as to what this is and why it’s making such a racket. It sounds a lot louder standing in the garden. The first time I heard this I considered it was lost and trying to communicate with others. LOL… Close Encounters springs to mind now!!
Late last night I finally worked out a way to send my query into the BBC Autumnwatch Unsprung questions. My recording was taken with a video camera. After going through YouTube as usual I uploaded my blank black video with sound.
I expect it takes a while to process and select questions. Perhaps there isn’t time to include this now anyway. I thought I’d give it a shot. I’m going to ask in the birding forums next. I like a good garden mystery… don’t you?
Okay… as they say in another BBC programme “don’t have nightmares, do sleep well”. LOL … it’s only a garden visitor after all. How about some gentle sounds from the morning garden to ease you into the weekend?
Let me introduce you to the star of yesterday’s post…
Have a great weekend listening to the sounds in your garden! I wonder what you will hear… do pop by and share it with us all. Thanks for any ID suggestions too.
The sound video above was taken in my garden just after dark on November 4th 2009. The morning video was taken in my garden on November 5th 2009.
