Birdsong became more beautiful during lockdown because humans weren’t drowning it out, scientists reveal


t the peak of lockdown the endless clamour of the human world temporarily ceased – countless industries paused operations, non-essential shops closed their shutters, roads fell almost silent.

Those people who were able to venture outside their homes, either to take their government-sanctioned daily exercise, or to travel to key jobs, experienced a very different world, and one which as many noted at the time, was full of birdsong.

A new study now indicates it was not just the sudden drop in noise pollution which suddenly allowed us to hear the birds.
