Bees in cherry blossom

London lockdown sound recorded by David Sillito.

"Huntingdon Road, East Finchley.  I've walked along this road for 18 years.  
"Last week I heard what sounded like some industrial machinery outside number 49, Huntingdon Road.  After a minute or so I realised the sound was coming from above me.  

"The tree was in full blossom and alive with bees. There was no traffic - and no people, suddenly we could hear the ambient sound of spring in East Finchley. Magical."
