Urban Wildlife

Monday, September 24th, 2012

Here are another couple of field recordings that capture the sounds of wildlife in an urban, Birmingham garden.

The first is a recording of a flock of starlings that happend to roost for a short time on the roof of my house. The sliding melodic songs are echoed briefly amongst the traffic by an ice cream van and a siren. They departed as swiftly as they arrived.

This second recording is the delicate sound of worms and woodlice working their way through my compost bin. It was recorded using hydrophones submerged under the surface of the compost.
