Above the River Wye

This recording contrasts ‘Below the River Wye’, being made in a small, thin stretch of woodland running along the bank above the river. The wood was flanked by fields and so, in it’s isolation, was accommodating a relatively concentrated number of birds. The microphone was set at ground level, well placed to capture the sounds of flies and other insects which are also prominent.  The flowing river is omnipresent and the soundscape as rich and dense as that below the water.
