Dawn Chorus (Excerpt)

England, May 2018

 

An excerpt from an extended dawn chorus recording, captured in a valley meadow in the Cotswolds.

I positioned the microphones near a small stream running through the middle of the valley. My goal was to capture the dawn chorus from a distance (as opposed to a position within nearby woodland), in order to convey the sense of space and absorbent properties of the surrounding meadow grass.
