Good Music: Blackbird Song

As today is the Summer Solstice (the longest day of the year) here in the northern hemisphere (happy winter solstice for you down in the southern hemisphere!), I thought I’d do something different for some good music – some bird song!

One of my favourite bird songs is the common European Blackbird (Turdus merula). I have a very friendly male blackbird which often sits on a fence post in my garden and sings away (it’s actually singing as I type!).

So although the below recording is from Ireland (and is from, this could have been recorded in my back garden!

So sit back and enjoy a couple of minutes of wonderful bird song. (If you like this, you might also like ‘Tweet of the Day’ from the BBC.)
