Dawn Chorus in Wotton
Recorded sometime in 50's or early 60's, probably up Old London Road

Here's a real treat. Take yourself back in time by listening to these 2 recordings of bird song.

They were probably recorded up Old London Road, sometime in the late 1950's or early 1960's.

In one of these recordings you can hear a steam train, far in the distance, pulling out of Charfield Railway Station.

Can you recognise all the birds?
