It is rather difficult to photograph all our bird life, so we will list what has been recognised and, as time allows, we will record them and place them on this site. Click on the blue links to listen to the sounds. If you use Netscape the file should play automatically. If you use Internet Explorer you may need to download software such as Winamp. You will be asked if you wish to play the file or download it and save it. You should be quite safe just playing it. The recordings are all in Mono and sampled at 11Khz (8bit) to keep the files small.
