This lovely soundscape was captured on the fringe of a protected nature reserve. The ocean waves have a soft tonality as I was positioned about 50 metres back from the beach, but the forest birdsong is clear and present. While listening to the birds you should be able to hear a lovely natural forest echo. That's a real forest ambience - no artificial reverberation was added to this recording. They are such happy, friendly sounding little fellows aren't they?
