Episode 24: The Soundscape

In Episode 24 of the Knepp Wildland Podcast, we are joined by brilliant artist Hazel Reeves to hear how she has been inspired by the Knepp soundscape to extend her artistic practice beyond her studio.

Hours before many of our alarms go off, Hazel can be found sitting quietly in the Knepp Wildland, taking sound recordings of the dawn chorus and one of her favourite birds in particular: the Nightingale.

We talk about aberrant Nightingale songs, the joy of clattering White Stork bills, and how soundscape ecology can give us hope as we hear how the health of a landscape can be detected through the richness of sound.

To keep up to date with Hazel’s work and wildlife sound recordings, check out her website: and follow her on Instagram @hazelreevessculptor

Our 12+ Policy

Knepp Wildland Safaris and campsite are all about the quiet and patient observation of nature.

Some of the species we are likely to encounter are shy or can be frightened by loud noises or sudden movements. Our campsite with open-air fire-pits, wood-burning stoves and an on-site pond is unsuitable for small children.

For this reason, our safaris, holiday cottages and campsite are suitable only for children of 12 and over.
