Earth Notes: Herne Bay Ambient (2021-07)Updated 2021-09-08 17:57 GMT.
By Damon Hart-Davis.
This episode has no spoken commentary from me, it's just the ambience again.
This one-week "UKation" aka "UK staycation" was in lieu of a likely beach fortnight in the south of France, since the coronavirus complications are still with us.
[Ambient sounds from Herne Bay, Kent, UK, by the sea at the mouth of the Thames.]
The final recording (8pm) of the last evening there (2021-07-30):
A short recording from the Victoria Line (London Tube) on the way home:
All field recordings at 16-bit 48ksps lossless WAV (converted to FLAC) on a Zoom H1n, handheld. Each track was trimmed where necessary, has a ~2s fade-in and fade-out applied, then was loudness normalised to LUFS -23dB in Audacity. Not all clips were used.
There were lots of gulls and sparrows about, and also starlings and what I took to be terns.
