A single chirping call of an English robin bird. Approximately 2 meters from the recorder.

    Hi, I use these sounds to indicate the end of an audio recording (I'm a typist). They come in useful, especially when on the odd occasion the recording cuts out mid-sentence, so I know I definitely am at the end. I love robins, and have a semi-tame one in my garden who takes food out of my hand.

    Thank you! Superb quality. I’ve used and credited your exquisite recording on a video I created called ‘Calling Ellie' from a short story by Liz Challoner, recorded in both English and Nuer translation. It will soon appear on the 'In Translation' page on the Spineless Wonders website: https://shortaustralianstories.com.au/
