The stunning sound of Nightingales

The “Feira do Folar” is a 3 day festival over the Easter weekend at my local town, Sao Marcos da Serra.

Last night I attended and after many (local) Gin and Fresh Oranges I walked the 20 minute trek back to the house.

The Moon was full a few days ago so was just about lighting the way through some broken clouds. Apart from this it was pitch black. I sat on a step at a local public well and listened to the fantastic chorus of Nightingales.

I took a recording on my mobile phone and thought I’d share it. Sometimes, you don’t need vision to appreciate the nature around you.

About 5 minutes after this recording, I stumbled across a family of Javali (Wild Boar) and it’s a good job the phone wasn’t recording as it gave me a bit of a shock and many expletives were said! Luckily, the Javali were also just as startled and made their way into the thick bush.

Spread the photo love!...
