Coastal Birds

Synopsis
An audio guide to the calls of 50 species of birds found along the British coastline, compiled from recordings in the British Library Sound Archive. The 50 tracks include a range of seabirds, waders, wildfowl and even a couple of songbirds. Some species such as the Oystercatcher and Ringed Plover are permanent residents on the British coastline and can been seen throughout the year.Others, such as the Puffin, Storm Petrel and Arctic Tern only return to these shores for a limited time in order to breed. For certain species such as the Knot and Turnstone, British waters offer a safe haven in which they can see out the winter before heading back to more northerly nesting grounds in the spring.
