Strange Beastie Sounds in My Friends’ Back Gardens

It’s been almost 2 years since I wrote my post strange Australian back garden beastie sounds. Today, I have a triple feature for you, three lots of strange beastie sounds not from my back garden but from my friends back gardens!

Unlike before, this time I’m pretty sure I know who is making the music. But there are a lot of them, so maybe I’ll just let you have a go at identifying them yourselves.

Now, did I mention we’ve had a fair bit of rain around here lately? Yep, I think I did. Most of us are heartily sick of it, but there’s one species in these parts that just can’t get enough of it.

And when it comes, they love nothing more than “singing in the rain!”

Anyway, enough of the intros, click on the play button below and have a listen for yourself. See how many beasties YOU can pick out. And don’t forget to comment below to tell me what you think…….

I got to tell you though, I’m so impressed with the wall of sound they produce that I am seriously thinking of signing them up and forming a band. I’d be their manager, of course, but I’m a bit stuck thinking of what I should call them.

Any ideas anybody?

    How about “Band of Bothers”?

    Don’t mention the dropbears! Still trying to win the readers over about the spiders and snakes.

    If they were rattlesnakes in the background, there were hundreds of them. I think they were cicadas. Hope they were. Thanks for your support Gordon.

    If the presence of frogs indicates a healthy ecosystem , there’s a nice habitat in your near neighborhood Bob , although I’m a bit concerned about the apparent rattlesnakes heard in the latter part !

    At least being close to the city you “should be” relatively safe from the dropbears ,
    and as far as I know they are diurnal not nocturnal hunters so you probably were safe at night out there , you wouldn’t want to tangle with them . Fearsome they are.

    On a more serious note , I hope you’re above the flood line right now , I saw you looked up the ‘My Country” poem , sums it all up doesn’t it ?

    Every cloud has a silver lining as the saying goes , when this weather settles back ( as it will ) there will be more work available than there are ( skilled) people to fill the jobs.

    All the best , Gordon
