That struck me as amusing. Mainly because my formative birding years were as
a young teenager with the BOCA in the early 1970s. I recall many loud
chatterings among excited people looking at birds. Amusing chat of people
talking not just amongst but to themselves. Social groups are still like
that. Surely Peter has also been with a group of birders looking at birds
and discussing what it is - or discussing the weather or football or
anything else. And been able to see the reaction. Then again it is hard to
know if people talking is what would make a bird move away. Yes of course
for some birds quietness helps but I doubt that one person discretely
talking into a machine held a few cm from their face is a problem. 

But thanks to Peter for adding a subject line........

Has anyone tried these small recorders in the wind? It would be
disappointing if you couldn't hear your notes later because of wind rumble.

I'm also wondering if making voice notes ever spooks birds.
