Blackbird at number 1.
The blackbird is the undisputed number one, on that Meeuwsen agrees. ‘That sound is not just beautiful, but you feel as though you understand what a blackbird is saying.' After the blackbird, the Dutch chose the sound of the surf, the nightingale, field birds and a purring cat. Meeuwsen himself prefers the sounds of the midwife toad, the crane and a barking deer. The full top 40 can be seen and heard on the Vroege Vogels website.
