Recording notes: in sequence #51818-51822. Second part of recording with #51821. Sunset to moonlight (the full moon rose while it was still light), covers the period 19.15 to 2100. There are few close solos in this sequence; as the evening develops cicadas, grasshoppers and crickets begin to make noise. This second part, 20.18 to 20.56, opens with a recording made from a slight rise in the ground behind the location of the first and third sequences, panning slowly across the furthest distances of the lake and its margins. In the foreground are the high bell-like chirps of crickets. It is interrupted by a move into the middle of a loud chorus of crickets and tree frogs which were heard far away in the course of the pan. The sequence closes on the southern margin of the lake, with the sound of the night flights of the Black Duck.
