I’m a member of the Wildlife Sound Recording Society. The Society welcomes anyone who is interested in or has an appreciation of the sounds made by wildlife. Ive joined to develop a network with other sound artists and to learn which sound recording equipment is best for recording birds.
Roger Charters (another member of WSRS), has had many years experience recording the sounds of wildlife. He invited me to his house to discuss my interests, share his experiences and pass on some helpful tips and advice on purchasing sound recording equipment. We went to a nature reserve nearby in Leamington Spa, I used Rogers directional mics (crossed over for a stereo effect) to record the sounds of the birds in the trees. The batteries on my Marantz recorder ran out, so below is a very short example of some of the recordings!
