PDF EAGLES AND NIGHTINGALES (THAT NIGHTINGALE THANG)
The MD format allows me to keep all the original recordings. The compact set-up suits me as it allows me to carry photographic equipment also. Producing sonagrams has given me a much better understanding of what I am hearing. I have been recording bird sounds since the mids, almost exclusively in the Neotropics, based in Venezuela.
Most recordings come from fieldwork: rapid assessments and bird censuses e. Neomapas project. Almost all my material is analogue, on cassette tape and needs to be archived and converted to digital format.

This involves identifying the effects of selective or 'irregular' silviculture upon woodland birds compared to traditional woodland management and low intervention, closed canopy woodland. Irregular forest management aims to maintain a broad range of tree age classes from young naturally regenerated seedlings through to old veterans and reflect the natural dynamics of the woodland ecosystem. The novel application of sound recording through acoustic sampling across the different stands of trees will be undertaken to measure variation in bat species richness and abundance.

I am retired and enjoy the odd bit of relaxed birdwatching from time to time. I can identify most of the common UK residents by sight and am learning to do the same by song or call.
In the same location in France a few years back, I thought I heard nightingales in June.

One of the most difficult problems is to record sound relevant to the visual section of the video. Of course the camera has an audio microphone but its mission in life seems to capture poor sound which is not relevant to the subject. You will of course see that the professionals have several assistants with micro phones covered in fur which can be positioned in a suitable position. Professional productions frequently use music to fill in, giving atmosphere to the production. My equipment is me, my tripod and my camera. Some times my wife replaces the human section. Tropical rain forest, one of my favourite environments provides really useful background sound most of the time but mostly bird hides and guides and the birding group, and worst of all wind, traffic and aircraft are not helpful.
