Tweet of the Day Tweet of the Day: British Birds

Tweet of the Day is a year long series of fascinating stories about our British birds inspired by their calls and songs. Each 90 second episode features birds which you are likely to hear each month, followed by a story of fascinating ornithology inspired by their sound. Listen to the episodes to discover insights into the behaviour or habits of the bird, their literary or folklore associations, stories of science or conservation success. Working with a team of wildlife sound recordists, Gary Moore, Geoff Sample, and Chris Watson as well as recordings from the Natural History Unit Sound Archive, this series written and produced by the BBC Natural History Unit is a wildlife treat.
