Woodland Scene: Dawn Chorus
Field recording of the sun rising in DeGrey’s woodland, near Ripon, on the first of May 2018.
“I had hoped for a full CDs worth – but a Wren sat on the stereo T-Bar and piped up, straight away my levels clipped. The Wren then started to peck at the microphone fluff to get nest building material. So you’ll have to settle for a 60 Minute recording.”
Recorded using Andrew’s SoundDevices MixPre 6, Telinga Clip-on Mics and a deal of patience. Thanks to Airline Taxis for getting me to the farm where my Dad works – all at 5am on a Sunday morning. I forget the lad’s name, the driver, but he was a gentleman.
