An estate / hamlet on the edge of small wood and meadowland in Holland. On this calm May afternoon around 1pm al birds sing there song. Sometimes some people far. The wind if friendly blowing between 1-3 bft.
Landgoed Haanwijk
A small dog in one of the gardens is barking during the recording cause he feels alone. In the background frogs in a small pound.

A very special thank to Johnny Rommens, a Dutch bird watcher for determination all the birds in this recording.

Determination;
Blackbird
Blackcap
Wren
tomtit
Finch
ringdove
Cuckoo
warbler
Green woodpecker
Black Crow
Treecreeper (call, 34:27)
Starling
Chew (34:23)
mavis
Black-headed Gull (?) (28:24)
Dove
Goldcrest (call, 15:17-15:03)
Robin
Greenfinch (2:53)

The blackbird, blackcap, wren and blue tits were practically the most dominant birds in the entire clip (or they were almost hear all the time).
The finch, wood pigeon, cuckoo, starling and song thrush only came about halfway slightly higher and the rest were at most 1 to 3 times for it. I also thought something 2x a call of a black-headed gull having heard what was probably a seagull flying overhead on the forest.

    Hello - I have used this luminous recording here, as the backdrop for yet another concert: https://soundcloud.com/ivodne-galatea/the-dancing-masters-guitaret
    This time it is based around dance music: Arbeau, Sanz, Tarrega, Holborne, Purcell, Handel, Chopin, Bach, Downland and Baron. Pretty tunes to match the birdsong!

    Thank you so much for making these magical "sound images" available
