More signatures needed in support of Nightingales.

This is something anyone can support. I've just signed although its highly unlikely I shall ever hear a Nightingale in Argyll in Scotland.  Listen too to the recording. It's not just remarkable to listen to but as a unique event in its own right.

Anything you can do to help........sign, support , promote , will be more than gratefully appreciated.


vDear Friends,
Singer Ziazan says: "Great news! Yesterday I went on a walk where I heard three or four nightingales and one of them sang back to me. We had a magical duet and then he flew away — I don't know if he was flying from me or the starlings who were making a fuss."
We are lucky to have Ziazan's support for the launch of National Nightingale Nights week which is today ! (2-9 May). See her remarkable video here: http://youtu.be/-edZpHpv3Ck
Ziazan uses the ancient Bel Canto singing technique once popular across Europe, which enables her to ‘sing like a bird’ with trills and fast notes. Early operas were all originally designed for Bel Canto singers who used to sing ‘like Nightingales’ to demonstrate their prowess. Ziazan is now the only singer using this technique.
For me she is almost as incredible as the birds themselves. At times the bird is imitating her. Tradition has it that Nightingales used to duet or compete with human singers but this has long been regarded as the stuff of legend. Ziazan shows it to be true.
Have a look at our website www.nightingalenights.org.uk for more videos, places to hear Nightingales and events to join.
We now only need the BBC's help to make sure everyone in the country gets to hear a Nightingale. Thanks again for signing - can you please now try to get at least one more person to sign maybe by showing them Ziazan's inspiring video ?
We've reached over 2400 - if we get to 6000 there will be one human for each singing live Nightingale in Britain.
