  1. I love these – just the sort of sounds I really enjoy. I have a few myself – one of my favourites is rain water pouring down a drain on the edge of a carpark in Farnham and I must get a recording of the pied wagtails going to roost in the hedge next to Waitrose! Your conversations of roosting sparrows is wonderful too.
