Lakes, Wetlands, Freshwater

Where there is water, there is life: wetlands and lakes present some of the most facinating soundworlds on our planet.

These albums take you to riverbanks, lakesides, wetlands, marshes, rainforest streams and waterfalls. Some feature actual running water sounds, others the theme of life around fresh water.
