Out to the lake this Sunday morning.
Perfect recording conditions: calm, cloudy, minus 2 degrees (everyone else will stay in bed).
Crawl successfully to the edge of the water under cover of darkness before dawn.
Set up the mics, ready to go…
Is it possible to be embarrassed when you’re all alone?
Never mind. Just check that all the knobs are correctly set and the appropriate LEDs are flashing, and hey presto! Some nice Teal and Whooper swan calls salvaged from the ruins of forgetfulness.
