Serenading Slumber: Whispers of Birds and Nests

Birds and their Nests by Mary Howitt

In this enchanting episode of “Sleepy Time Tales,” we invite you to drift into the realm of dreams as we delve into the soothing world of avian wonders. Nestled in the pages of “Birds and their Nests” by Mary Howitt, this episode is a lullaby for the soul, crafted to guide you into a restful slumber.

As the moonlight dances through the trees, join us on a tranquil journey through the graceful lives of Goldfinches, the melodic songs of thrushes, and the mysterious allure of blackbirds. With gentle words and mellifluous narration, we’ll unfurl the stories of these feathered beings, sharing their intricate nests and their delicate existence in nature’s embrace.


Allow the tender cadence of our narrator’s voice to wrap you in a cocoon of calmness, transporting you to meadows adorned with birdsong. Each word is carefully woven to whisk away the worries of the day, replacing them with the tranquillity of twilight and the promise of sweet dreams.

Tune in to “Serenading Slumber: Whispers of Birds and Nests,” and let the tales of these delightful creatures carry you into the realm of sleep, where the soft rustling of feathers and the gentle caress of dreams await.

Need help with a Podcast?

As you know I left my job at the end of July to spend more time with my family.

To earn a living, I have started a company to edit and produce podcasts.

From basic podcast edits to full handling of all post-production tasks including show notes and publication.

I’ve even found that doing all of the work setting up a podcast for clients is quite popular. It’s not hard, just time consuming for busy people with other work to prioritise.

 So if you or someone you know needs a podcast edited or any podcast admin done, drop me a line at or check out my site at

SleepPhones, our exciting new partnership

In our experience the best way to experience the bedtime stories of Sleepy Time Tales is with some type of headphone or earbud, but they can be cumbersome and uncomfortable.

So we’ve partnered SleepPhones, manufacturers of headphones designed specifically to sleep in! They use a thin speaker fitted to a comfortable headband and have options from the cost effective wired headphones to the convenient Bluetooth model and will work with Sleepy Time Tales to improve your night’s sleep.

Sleepy Time Tales Merch and Stuff

I’ve been putting up a lot of new designs on Teepublic

Not all of the designs are Sleepy Time Tales branded, actually most aren’t, so you can support the podcast without needing to emblazon the logo on yourself. 😊
