This is our second Sounds of Nature post as we venture into the aural dimensions of Assynt’s wildlife thanks to visitor Clive Davies from Stafford.
No actual species with this recording instead we have two minutes of the sounds of sea, sand and rocks at Bay of Culkein. Clive used hydrophones buried a few centimetres down in the sand at the bay to make this recording. He told us this was the first time he had used the hydrophones so it was a learning exercise for him. We really look forward to the next time in that case given the enjoyment this recording gave us!
The tides and movement of the seabed and foreshore play a huge part in the availability of food around our coast. Hence the reason why one small bay can support such a wide range of animal life.
Enjoy the sounds of nature and please let us know your thoughts on this venture. Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
