British wildlife recordings

Number of items in collection: 640

Short description:

Recordings in this collection can be played by anyone.

This selection of sound recordings of all kinds of wildlife from around Britain is from the Sound Archive's unrivalled natural sounds collection. It includes recordings of great scientific, cultural and historic interest. Made for the most part in nature reserves and wild locations, the recordings often have special significance in documenting ancient habitats that are gradually vanishing. Some of the species featured have already become extinct - the red-backed shrike from Norfolk, for example, and the Worcestershire marsh warbler.
