A few moments of reflection during these stressful times with the help of meditative sounds from nature.
We are all going through some challenging times, a pandemic, for Americans, an election whirlwind…or maybe other things in life. So, we wanted to give you a break, a chance to step away from the stress and into the wild. On this special episode of THE WILD we listen to a dawn chorus in Eastern Washington and ravens off the fog drenched shores of the Oregon coast.
These sounds were recorded by Gordon Hempton the Sound Tracker and co-founder of Quiet Parks International.
Join me as I meet bats up close and in person and try to figure out the mystery behind these winged mammals.
Kick back for a spot of British birdwatching as I head into the English countryside with twitcher Lee Evans. Lee is an extreme birder and he’s become notorious in a nation of bird-lovers, as the man who’ll go to any lengths to fulfill his bird obsession.
Lee has driven 2.2 million miles around the UK and Ireland looking for birds. So far he’s seen 594 different species, but not without some mishaps. I join him for a day in the field to hear more, and to tap into the mind of a really fascinating and knowledgeable man. Enjoy!
