May and June are an active time in the wilds of the Estonian countryside. The daylight hours extend from early morning to long into the night until the peak time in late June (celebrated by the folk holiday ‘Jaanipäev‘). Nature also follows a similar pattern which can clearly be heard in the soundscape, particularly with birds, frogs and insects. I went out the other night and decided to do some recording because the air was extremely still. There was a thunder storm off in the distance which can be heard faintly behind the frogs and nightingales (and dogs).
