Recording notes : A lengthy portrait of a vigorous singer. In the old woods at Hajduki the dawn chorus is well underway, when a cock Pied Flycatcher moves in to dominate the woodland soundscape. Changing its phrasing as it progresses, at time our bird is closely shadowed by the tapping of a Great Spotted Woodpecker and the simple song of a Great Tit. Other noticeable singers are Song Thrush, Wood Warbler, cuckoo and a rattling Blackbird. All around are the varying timbres of many Woodpeckers drumming on the old boughs. An early start, but I failed to beat the traffic.
