  • Description

    Recording notes : In the words of the sound recordist "Jagged voices of Marsh frogs blend with the retching of their Edible cousins, filling the night with an urgent cacophony and creating a hypnotic experience for the sound recordist. Avian vocalisations provide a contrast, even a relief, from these harsh utterances, and prominent among these bird sounds are the reeling of Savi's Warbler, booming from Bitterns, calls of distant Cuckoos, and the rhythmic songs of Reed Warblers. A little traffic passes in the blackness of the night."
