  • Description

    Recording notes : A marshland soundscape towards dusk. The sonar bleeps of Fire-Bellied Toads contrast with reiterated croaks of European Tree Frogs, and lend a background to the whiplash calls of a Spotted Crake. This was skulking in scant cover near to the bank on which I was sitting. From this vantage point I had a commanding view across the extensive, shallow lake. At times an Edible Frog can be heard croaking and retching softly in the foreground. A Black-Tailed Godwit flightcalls, a Bittern booms, and a Common Sandpiper comes in to land closeby. The marsh teems with life. On the south bank of Lake Siemianowka.
