Standing up for bird song…

Nearly a year ago I wrote a post about how road noise is making it more difficult to hear nature’s sounds and that instead of complaining about traffic, we should be more positive and stand up for bird song (link to post).

Well, today there was an article in The Guardian reporting on research from the US showing that we are slowly becoming deaf to nature’s sounds and that there are positive effects on people from being able to hear the natural world around them.

So I can have good ideas when walking home from the pub!
