Listen to nature at the British Library

The British Library's web site has a new section of nature sounds, with RealAudio files of animals from all over the world. If you'd like to know what a koala or a hedgehog -- or, for that matter, a haddock -- sounds like, this is the place to find out.

These pages provide only a small sample of the library's sound archive, which has hundreds of thousands of musical, spoken-word and nature recordings going back to the invention of the phonograph. I hope they'll make more of these available online in future.
