field recording Pembrokeshire

I was kind enough to myself to take a break recently, and record in the field just for fun (is getting up for dawn chorus fun?) Even at 5.30am at Dale Fort (a small peninsula near St David’s) at the furthest point west in the UK mainland before you fall into the sea, you can’t escape anthropogenic noise 🙁

I was lucky enough to have some nice mics with me (stereo DPA 4060s, a Sennheiser 8060 shotgun some contacts and hydrophones from Jez Riley French), and a Sound Devices 633. It’s a good time for being in the field, spring.
