  • In Iceland: Active Nature, get a collection of the energetic ambiences from the magical ecosystems of the far north. Hear the resounding sound of volcanic valleys as the endless summer sun fuels the ecosystem. Hear playful shorebirds energetic calls and whooshing flybys. Hear the visceral cacophony of bird colonies squawking from clifftop nests and resonant raven caws that ring for miles. Hear Arctic Terns dive bombing invaders and Red-throated Loons singing charismatic calls over still water. 
  • This library is packed full of tracks with vibrant flora and fauna from the lively summer landscapes of the arctic. I hope you enjoy listening.
