SWALLOWS (ADULT & FLEDGLING) IN DORSET


A few photos taken in July and August of swallows in Dorset. Our recently installed upgraded electricity cables are ridiculously large, but at least they provide a solid perch for the birds. The adult swallows shown are followed by a young trainee swallow nabbing a passing insect; and some cute fledglings including one (penultimate) who decides to call for its food the easy way – and the compliant parent… Swallow, Dorset 6 Swallow, Dorset 9 Swallow, Dorset 13Swallow, Dorset 2Swallow, Dorset 1Swallow, Dorset 10 Swallow, Dorset 11 Swallow, Dorset 12    Swallow, Dorset 16 Swallow, Dorset 15Swallow, Dorset 17

RECORDING BIRDS THE EASY WAY

RECORDING BIRDS THE EASY WAY

I have refined my blurb in my last woodpecker post about a simple way to use an iPh@ne or other smart phone to record birds, getting the resulting m4p file onto your computer, and converting the file to an mp3. I’ve added some stuff, in particular some practical field notes based on my own trial and error experience. There are also 3 recordings, which include examples of minor hitches. One was not setting the volume on max to record (the first 2 examples) – turn up your volume for these! If anyone has anything to add, by all means use the comment box…
