Well, first of all my sincere apologies for the lack of updates with this e=
Alas, I have not been at all successful in trying to find the "focal point"=
 of the squirrel baffle dome.  I think I need to gain a bit more experience=
 in nature recording and be more familiar with my Olympus LS14 before tackl=
ing any more DIY microphone experiments. =0D
However I was successful in building a pair of the EM172 mics, which I have=
 put into 4" off cuts of 22mm plastic plumbing, so at least I can use these=
 as stereo microphones. I have been thoroughly confusing myself looking at =
SASS rigs and other methods of recording in stereo. All very confusing to a=
 beginner like myself. Using a pair of stereo mics as "tree ears" looks pro=
mising, if I don't have any trees nearby, I could always strap them to my b=
ackpack...  Ideally I would want a light weight portable solution (which th=
e squirrel dome is not!)=0D
So what I will probably do in the mean time is gain recording experience ju=
st using the inbuilt mics on the recorder if I want to record in stereo, ot=
her wise I'll use my shotgun mike.
