  • Description

    Recording notes : In the words of the sound recordist "The next morning finds me back at Hideg-Kâut and near to the Tree Sparrow colony and the sandy quarry. The staccato croaks identify the species of frog, which vocalises energetically against an early morning chorus. Here find: Field Cricket, Blackbirds, Cuckoo, Flying Insects, Hawfinch, Song Thrush, Blackcap Warbler, Goldfinch, and Golden Oriole. There is a brutal contrast between the delicacy of the bridsong and the ugly shouts of the Marsh Frog."
