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?
