This is the sound of the wee burn which Algy watched as it trickled over its peaty bed through the mosses and ferns to join the river behind him.

Listen to the seabirds calling in the shallows of the great sea loch at low tide – the sounds Algy heard on a sunny afternoon in July.

{The sound will be clearest through headphones or external speakers. Algy apologises for the background noise on this track – it was a wee bit windy again!}

Algy loves to listen to the merry sound of the blue burn as it plays around the rocks on its way across the beach to the sea.

Sitting by the burn, Algy found that the noise of the wind whooshing across the moorland disturbed the soothing trickling sounds of the water, and ruffled his mind as well as his feathers.

{The sound will be clearest through headphones or external speakers. Built-in computer speakers reproduce sound badly, and lose the bass components of the audio.}

The constant, soothing sound of the wee waterfall tumbling over the rocks just above him lulled Algy to sleep as he sat by the burn in the afternoon sun.

This is what Algy heard while he was sitting in his tree late in the evening, watching the red deer in the gloaming. It may not seem very exciting to you, but in Britain this is a very rare sound these days, and Algy is privileged to be hearing it. (The background whooshing sound is not the wind, but the sound of the sea on the rocks in the distance.)

{Algy suggests that you increase the volume and listen through headphones or speakers for the best effect.}

Mr. Blackbird was in very good voice this evening, and entertained Algy for some time with a long series of songs. On the crofts, the sheep were chiding their lambs, and in the background Algy could hear some of the other birds chattering to one another.

As Algy sat in his tree in the Scotch mist, trying to read his book, he could hear another of the newly arrived summer visitors calling to him in the distance, above the sound of the wind and the drizzling rain.

{This audio was recorded at a low level in rather difficult conditions! Algy suggests you increase the volume and listen through headphones or speakers for the best effect.}

When Algy moved down on to the rocks by the water, he sat quite still and listened to the fascinating sounds of the sea at low tide. It surged into the gullies between the rocks with a happy gurgle and splash, and sucked back out again with a hissing of sand, swirling the seaweed all around in the bubbling water at his feet.
