SOUNDS OF NATURE – early autumn birds
The Field Club’s Sounds of Nature Project was inspired by a chance encounter in May 2019 between two Assynt Field Club members and Clive Davis who was holidaying in Assynt. Clive, who is a member of the Wildlife Sound Recording Society, was making sound recordings of birds, etc. in the area.
The mental health benefits of listening to bird song and other sounds of nature have been well reported. Our website is by necessity very visual, both with regards to images and words. The main aim of our project therefore is to make the site, and hence Assynt’s wildlife, more accessible and meaningful for those with a visual impairment.
More information about the project along with links to other recordings can be found on the website’s Sounds of Nature Project page.

This recording again has the sea as its background music with numerous bird calls and songs along the way. The Robin is producing its winter song while most of the other birds are contact calling to those of their own species.
