The singing sands on Ruhnu

As well as being home to one strain of the Estonian Native Sheep, Ruhnu also has beaches with singing sand. This means that when you walk on the sand, it emits a kind of squeaking, high-pitched tone.

This is what the singing sands sound like, mixed with the sounds of the ocean lapping at the edges of this island, home to Selma’s flock of sheep.
