207 Bucolic dell in upland meadows (subtle, slow, best with headphones)
01:01:42 | Episode: 211 | February 18th, 2024

Steep grassy meadows. Grazing sheep. Overgrown hedgerows. Thickets. Narrow stony streams, sometimes with sandy banks. Grit stone walls, with tumbled stones where weather and animals have made a way through. Thistles. Clumps of dense nettles. Patches of tall, well established woodland. A muddy farm beyond. And another behind. And hours, if you want, if you allow yourself, to lean elbows upon damp timbered gates, Put aside what’s to do, and focus every part of your conscious mind on taking the landscape in. 

206 Dawn birdsong in the leafy ravine
41:12 | Episode: 210 | February 11th, 2024

Meteorological spring is approaching. Mornings are getting lighter. Song birds have found their voices, and though it’s still early in the mating season, are already decorating the hour around daybreak with mellifluous sound. In a few short months, it will peak.

205 Soundscenes of a changing tide (sleep safe)
35:16 | Episode: 209 | February 5th, 2024

Slide 1: Its the middle of the night. The Lento box is recording alone, tied to a cold, stark railing, that descends down the seawall into the water. Its an ear-witness to the nocturnal sound of this estuary place. East of Burnham-on-Crouch, facing due south, across the river, to Wallasea Island on the other side. There’s a bare wind, and the tide is out. Out, but on the turn. On the turn, and rising. 

204 Rain falls on steep craggy woodland (sleep safe)
58:17 | Episode: 208 | January 28th, 2024

Fresh rain. Fresh woodland rain, from Miller’s Dale in Derbyshire. From a hedgehog’s perspective. Low on the forest floor, amidst the leaf litter, and the tangled ivy. A hidden hedgehog’s place where only raindrops that have missed every leaf, twig and branch above, lands. 

203 Dartmoor stream above waterfall gorge (part 2)
50:21 | Episode: 207 | January 21st, 2024

Below a stone circle high on Dartmoor called the Nine Maidens, there’s a stream. It threads its way down through steep sloping pastures. In the distance, just a fine, silvery, crooked line. It enters an area of dense forest. Becomes enmeshed with the sound signatures of tall, reflective, overhanging trees. Of sparse woodland birds. And disappears over a waterfall, into a deep wooded gorge.   

202 Upland woods in winter gales (breathe easy and *sleep safe*)
01:01:30 | Episode: 206 | January 14th, 2024

There are spacious places in the world, where outcrops of woodland can be heard singing together in strong winter gales. Upland places. Uninhabited places. Naturally exposed, where the upper reaches of the land meet with the sky. 

201 Out on Cooden Beach at night (part 2 – night breakers on shingle) *sleep safe*
31:24 | Episode: 205 | January 7th, 2024

The night we captured this soundscene of Cooden Beach in East Sussex, there was a brisk onshore breeze blowing in from the west. West is to the right of scene, where the incoming waves can sometimes be heard making first landfall. It’s February. It’s coming up to 11pm. The sky is a deep dark velvet, and the clean sea air, is hovering around 6 degrees centigrade. Nobody is about. 

200 Windswept night in the belfry of Rye Church
01:00:38 | Episode: 204 | December 31st, 2023

Three o’clock has struck. Up steep ladders, on the top platform of the belfry inside Rye Church, the ancient clock counts through this small night hour. Its regular sound blends with long and undulating gusts of fresh sea air. Air that’s travelled, over miles of sand, shingle and marshland, from out on the open sea.
