Bird Videos for Relaxation

by nickupton

Watch, listen and relax with my collection of birds in habitat videos.

Being out in the natural world has been proven to benefit both physical and mental health and indeed it has played a major part for me and many others in dealing with covid-19 restrictions. When it is not possible to actually go out into nature, perhaps there is limited time or the weather is too poor, then watching a video of nature, particularly with the sounds of nature, can be a way of bring a few moments of peace into a busy lifestyle. With that in mind I have created a series of bird videos that encourage people to watch, listen and relax.

Bough Beech Reservoir

Wetland and woodland habitats & birds

Nestled between the rolling hills of mid Kent's Weald is a little-known reservoir, surrounded by meadows and ancient woodland that contain a wide variety of widlife and birdlife in particular. This peaceful location is a great one to just find a nice spot to sit, watch and listen to see which birds show up. Taking in the scenery and the sounds of the birds is a relaxing way to spend some time and every now and then a scarce bird like Marsh Tit bursts into song.

Foreness Point and Botany Bay

Rocky coastal scenery and birds

While the white chalk cliffs of Dover are world famous those on the north coast of Kent at Foreness are less well-known. With views into the North Sea the sound of the tide coming in and then receding can be mesmeric and when the rockpools are exposed a whole new world is revealed.

Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve

Waterbirds and lakeside habitat

Old gravel extraction pits have been consumed by fringing willows, alder carr and patches of secondary woodland, close to the pleasant town of Sevenoaks. In autumn the numbers of ducks begin to build up and the late evening light is very relaxing, culminating in some lovely sunsets.

Cliffe Pools

Marshland Birds and their habitats

Cliffe Pools is an area of old gravel and sand excavation, next to the River Thames, that has been given over to nature conservation. In particular is it important to wintering wildfowl and as a high tide roost for wading birds but the sound of the breeze blowing through the reeds and reflections of the light in the water make it a surprisingly tranquil place set among a landscape of decaying industry.

I sincerely hope I have managed to bring a few moments of tranquility from nature into people's lives with these videos and will be adding more as I make them.

These ones are just for natural sounds. I do make narrated videos but they serve a different purpose. Try this one - https://youtu.be/eTHOfFbB7KQ

Nice. How did you resist the urge to narrate?
