Recording birdsong and seascapes at Slapton Ley

I was invited to take part in a field studies trip with the University of Leicester’s Zoology degree group to learn more about their research projects at Slapton Ley, Devon in 2015. This presented a great opportunity to record birdsong in a variety of habitats across the area and to inspire new artwork.


The playlist has a selection of recordings from the dawn chorus in ancient woodlands and reed beds, to recording by the fresh water lake and using a pair of hydrophones in the sea.

Recording at Durrell

A selection of sound recordings featuring endangered birds, taken at Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust as part of the Beauty of Birds course in 2014. Durrell is a charity based in Jersey, that works to save threatened species across the world from extinction.
