The last in the series of the Fill the birdsong posts- the song of a nightingale. It is considered by many to be the most beautiful birdsong. Having never head this song before I was awestruck by this 2 minute excerpt from the original recording which can downloaded from the link below the player.

Take 2 minutes to pause and listen. Do you think the nightingale lives up to its reputation?

Fill the world with birdsong.

Lest you should think he never could recapture
The first fine careless rapture!
