Recording notes: action: chatting paddyfield workers making a leisurely return home, against a panorama of avian vocalisations, Northern Red Bishops (Euplectes franciscanus) closeby, African Grey Hornbill on the distant right, Red-eyed Doves, flying insects, Long-tailed Starlings, Red-billed Wood Dove, an unidentified and distant singer, soft sounds of drums from the left, rustling of breeze through the grasses, slight drone from a distant vehicle, Grey-headed Sparrows (Passer griseus), faint stridulations from Orthopteras, an African Grey Hornbill moving in from the right, and then receding, native voices raised in dispute. Sound description: a leisurely atmosphere; marshland.
