Youngsters from Heron Hill School were interviewed as part of a sound intervention commissioned by Lakes Alive. 

South Cumbrian artist Dan Fox is creating a piece called Cymbria which contains the voices and sounds of Cumbria. 

He spent time with pupils from Kendal's Heron Hill School to record their views on the landscape they live in. The children told him about what insects they study, and the different kinds of bees and butterflies they see on the old canal bank. 

The children were recorded while taking part in a South Lakes Action on Climate Change pollinator project funded by The Ernest Cooke Trust.

During Lakes Alive, which runs 8-10 September, people will be able to listen to Dan's Cymbria along the banks of the River Kent close to Abbot Hall.

Dan will be recording more sounds of Cumbria over the next few weeks.
