Jeni Bell’s Wild Britain – Langford lakes , a soundscape

Langford lakes – A Soundscape

words  by Jeni Bell

The continued adventures Of Jeni , Bill and Millie……..

We’re so quick to relate our experiences in nature to what we see; the colours of the leaves that dangle from tree branches, shimmering green like ripples across water as the breeze passes through. We are quick to regale others with the sight of a buzzard rising on thermals, pulled by invisible thread upwards into the cornflower blue sky. On walks we point at the ducks on the pond, or the deer lurking in the woods, the impressive size of the rather rotund bumblebee that seems to buckle under its own weight carried only by two tiny wings, and the birds adorning the hedgerows

We see a lot and it’s wonderful. But what about our other senses; what about our hearing? Nature is secretive, it hides away in thickets and scrubs, or passes high overhead and sneaks round corners when we aren’t looking. So much of it slips through our fingers because we are relying solely on eyesight. A recent stroll around a local nature reserve opened my eyes (or ears) to the idea that our hearing can be the key for opening some of nature’s hidden doorways.
