Thanks for listening.
Yes, there is probably a "too close", but as you say, you shouldn't be to f=
ar away either.
Actually i handheld the Whitethrout recording. It's not easy though...
The Reed bunting and Great reed warbler was on tripod. I have made most of =
my recordings handheld so far.
The BP4025 stereo mic was more sensitive to not only handling noise but als=
o sound from behind the dish. I can hear my stomach in many recordings... I=
 need to eat before going out recording... ;)
It was quite difficult handholding the dish with BP2025.
The AT4022 is more forgiving to handling noise and it's even more forgiving=
 to sound from behind the dish (mostly me :))
The best way to do it seems to be using a tripod and with BP4025 i also nee=
d to use a cable that is at least 5 meter long.
I want to (learn to) handhold it because sometimes I want to follow for exa=
mple a Woodcock flying. For longer recordings and if I want to be really su=
re that there is no handling noise, a tripod will be best, if I have the ti=
me to set it up.
