nightingale 1 x 6   [2]


Aiguamolls d'Empordá, Al Matá, Catalunya

22 JUN to 2 JUL 2013


This nightingale sings constantly from juniper bushes by the fence, from the time we arrive and put up our tents. On the first nights there was a full or near full moon which rose soon after nightfall.The nightingale would typically sing on and off during the day, fall quiet in the evening, then begin again when the moon rose, sometimes continuously for several hours. It also sang at other times during the night: sometimes fully; sometimes schematically. Singing began again before daybreak, accompanied by other nightingales nearby, and later other birds
