PURE launches birdsong library with the RSPB


We have teamed up with the RSPB to bring an RSPB approved library of birdsong from the top 50 UK birds to our radios via our radio and media portal, thelounge.com 

Owners of any PURE radio with Flow technology are able to listen to the 50 different types of UK birdsong, ranging from the more well known, like robin and blackbird, to the more uncommon lesser spotted woodpecker and pied wagtail. The radios also display scrolling text about the birds.

The birdsong library is also be available on the go through the PURE Lounge iPhone App, which brings PURE’s radio and media portal (thelounge.com) to iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad users. The Lounge App can be downloaded at the Apple iTunes App Store in the UK for just £2.99.

Both Sensia, PURE’s revolutionary touch-screen internet-connected digital radio, the Lounge iPhone App and the Lounge itself will also display illustrations of the birds to help identification.

Blackbird most popular birdsong

Since the library was launched, the blackbird has become the most listened to tune from the list of 50 birdsongs.

The blackbird song was listened to by almost twice the number of new users than the birdsong in second place, that of the blue tit.

The black headed gull’s song was in third place, with the bullfinch and robin just behind. The pleasant warbling of the male blackbird forms the foundation of the dawn chorus in woods and gardens everywhere.
