Dawlish Warren Pond

This was recorded at around 06:45 this morning, after a failed attempt at dawn chorus recording. Possibly the fact that it was the coldest night for several weeks had put the birds off, as there was virtually no song in the woodland surrounding this small pond at Dawlish Warren NNR. At least the waterfowl did their best to make up for it…

Species include: Little Grebe, Mallard, Canada Goose, Herring Gull, Woodpigeon, Blackbird, Chiffchaff, Greenfinch, Magpie and Carrion Crow.

Recorded with a Tascam HD-P2 recorder and two RØDE NT1-A microphones in a custom-built ORTF array with a central barrier. Filtered to remove vehicle noise and boosted by 6dB in post-processing.
