Fans of former DAB station Birdsong can now get their fix of tweeting on PURE’s internet radios.
The radio maker has teamed up with the RSPB to put a library of bird sounds onto its Flow connected sets.
It contains 50 different types of UK birdsong – ranging from robins and blackbirds to the lesser spotted woodpecker and pied wagtail. The radios will also display scrolling text giving information about the birds. PURE’s touch-screen Sensia, as well as the company’s Lounge iPhone app will also feature illustrations of the birds to help identification.
The RSPB’s Bryan Bland says: “People in the UK love their garden birds and having a library of 50 different birds to listen to through the radio is a great way of bringing the outdoor inside. It’s great that owners of PURE radios with Flow Technology will be able to see and hear a bird from their kitchen window, and straight away find out more about it via their radio.”
Colin Crawford, PURE’s director of marketing, added: “We know that birdsong is extremely popular with our customers as it has consistently been the top alarm on Siesta Flow, our internet-connectedbedside radio, so we jumped at the chance to offer a RSPB endorsed library of birdsong as we know it will be a real hit with our customers as well as a great educational tool.”
