  • Description

    Recording notes: in sequence #51818-51822. Made at the same place as #51818. The day has warmed up and a gusty wind begins to blow from the south-west. The first section - Spotted Crakes, Sacred Kingfisher and Mallee Ringneck Parrots - was made between 7.15 and 7.30. A dead tree close to the recording post was a favourite roost of a Black Kite. As it flies above or sits in the tree, its calls punctuate the rest of the sequence. The second section is woven from the song of the Grey Shrikethrush, 9.00 to 9.45. In the third section, the frogs return along with the song of a Clamorous Reed Warbler, and closes with a trio of potted Crakes as they forage in the mud in front of the recordist, 10.45-11.25.
