Birds. That's pretty much all there is to say. This podcast is such a serene, tranquil, aural delight. It's like Rob bottled peace and is selling it to us for free.
really enjoying how Rob has put this together, almost like I am on the hike
In this time of being stuck at home this podcast has given me access to the sounds I miss. So calm and peaceful, wonderful to put on and just zone out to. Rob does such a good job capturing all the bird songs. Really a great listen right now
