    "Bring nature into town"

    Living in a town the only time you get to hear the unspoilt sounds of nature is first thing in the morning before all the daily build up of traffic, factory noise and humans shatter the peace. Wild Britain allows me to put my headphones on and drift off to a place long away from the hustle and bustle of the town. The downloadable guide is the perfect partner allowing the listener to identify the individual sounds of nature.

    Story
    "A wild and enjoyable listen."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes if they enjoyed listening to the sounds of birds.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wild Britain?

    The wetland soundscapes.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    There isn't a narrator so this question is irrelevant.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not one specific one but any time I hear the sounds of lapwings and other waders is always enjoyed.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, an enjoyable listen.
