Recording notes: in sequence #51823-51827. The river bank at 10 o'clock. Among the many birds calling intermittently, a magpie wakens the resonance of the gums. It's joined by first one and then two Grey Shrikethrushes singing very close, but also very quietly - a kind of free subsong. To my ears there is a rambling fantasy to their music, an inconsequentiality shared by most of the birdsong this warm morning. By contrast, a group of White-winged Choughs chime in twice with their resonant piping calls as they move purposefully among the understorey.
