 This is an image from a magnetometer in York, this shows us when the Earth's magnetic shield is disrupted by solar flares from the Sun, after activity of this kind usually then we can expect to hear those strange sounds on our vlf receivers.

VLF (Very Low Frequency), is a receiver for picking up Earth's natural radio, frequencies in question range from 0hz - 22khz.
What you receive are things called whistlers, sferics, tweaks, dawn chorus.
A search on the web for VLF will give you lots of details, along with how to build a receiver for yourself.
What you will hear most of the time are what's called sferics, that's the sound of lightning strikes 1000's of them happening around the World.
When certain conditions are right, you would then hopefully hear what's called whistlers, really strange when you hear them for the first time, also dawn chorus which sounds like birds twittering in the morning.
