An audio introduction to the mammals of Britain

The chilling screams of the Red Fox, the rutting calls of the Fallow Deer and the rumbling growls of the Badger are just a few of the sounds that can be heard on British Mammals. This useful identification guide from the British Library Sound Archive presents a comprehensive collection of recordings that will help listeners learn how to identify the sounds of British mammals. It includes the calls of species such as the Red Deer, Red Squirrel and Grey Seal that are celebrated features of the British landscape. It also features the sounds of our more secretive mammals such as the Otter, Yellow-necked Mouse and Pine Marten.

This new collection is the latest in the series of CDs using our extensive Sound Archive collections, and will appeal to anyone who has ever wondered what they are listening to whilst on walks in the British countryside.
