RSPB attempts to enter music charts with birdsong track


Friday, April 26, 2019

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds are attempting to enter the music charts with a two-minute-long birdsong track.

Entitled Let Nature Sing, the song features the sounds of 25 threatened and endangered UK birds, and aims to raise awareness of Britain's declining bird numbers.

According to the RSPB, the track "showcases solo divas" including the blackbird, the robin, great spotted woodpecker and cranes.

Figures released by the RSPB show that 40 million birds have been lost in the country over the last 50 years, with 56 per cent of bird species in decline.

The charity is now encouraging people to download and stream the track for before May 2 in an attempt to place in the top 40.

A post on the RSPB Twitter page read: "We need help to make sure nature's music doesn't stop, can you show your support for wildlife in the UK and keep nature singing?".
