A very nice noise to have on in the background, especially if you grew up hearing birds but now live in the middle of London and miss them.

I had to give a star for "story" to be able to complete the review. There isn't a story.

Utter bliss!

I love the sound of bird song in the morning, but hate getting up early, so when I found this, I just had to downlaod it. I wasn't disappointed! It is so clear and relaxing, if you close your eyes, you ARE there!
