baltic thunderstorm

two summer field recordings


midnight chorus, Ahja river in late June

Recorded shortly after midnight in late June 2010. Mostly birds can be heard here. In the tree to the right is a Nightingale and in the field to the left is a Corn Crake (crex crex). In the distance are a few Cuckoo birds and the deep sound far off is a Eurasian Bittern (Botaurus stellaris). I prefer the Estonian name for this which is simply Hüüp, like its call.

Baltic Sea thunderstorm

Rather stunning display of a thunderstorm out at sea right at sunset in late July 2010. This lasted for a couple hours until the storm finally hit land (just as we were going to sleep).
