Wildlife Sound Recording Society Competition
The Sound Network Prize of 2 DPA SMK4060 microphones goes to the overall winner of the competition.
Robert writes "The marsh was at Barrage Imi-N-Laârba, near the town of Aït Ouri, 50km from Marrakesh. Arriving at 6pm, we were disappointed to discover so many people enjoying the warm, sunny evening. Undeterred, we found a quiet and sheltered spot, set-up the microphones and waited for darkness. This recording was made with a pair of MKH406's arranged ORTF in a homemade wind cage placed on a tripod in the reed bed. The recorder used was a Fostex FR-2LE. The competition entry was taken from a 2-hour recording.
As well as Cicadas, the main species heard are the deeper-voiced Berber Toads (Amietophrynus mauritanicus), Sahara Frog (Pelophyllax saharicus) and the rasping sounds of Mediterranean Tree Frogs (Hyla meridionalis)."
Our Restricted Category competition was generously sponsored by Wildlife Watching Supplies with the gift of a voucher to spend on-line.
