I've been snowed in for nine days and have been spending my time
recording day and night with my Sennheisers in the wood and on a new
bird table. They have survived snow and still gave good sound with six
inches of snow on the yeti windgags. I've got cine plus sound of a
Pied Woodpecker pecking at the nut dispenser after some practicing by
it and by me.
I've now got days of recordings to select from, but here's some rooks
this evening. The rookery is about a mile across the valley but they
come visiting my woods from time to time. Behind the rook noise there
is a crow trying to get a word in edgewise which it does near the end.
I think the odd call after that could be a local Raven making one of
its funny noises. It's a little over-compressed at 64kb/s.
