More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Birdsong recording 2

Here's Tue 16th March - again about 5am
Only about 20 minutes of singing
Here I've edited about 4 minutes of recording into just 1 minute of video.

If you can't click on the video straight away, be patient 
for anything from about 6 seconds up to about 40 seconds
and it will play OK.
It depends how busy youtube is.

It's worth the wait.

If it doesn't, just press "command" + "r" to reload the page.

The recording I made last year in April is a lot clearer.
The star of the show may be the very same bird. At least the same species.

Do you know what bird it is? I know last year it was a little later and there was some light so I was able so spot what I thought was a wren but it may not have been the bird responsible for the main song, with such variety and length...
