When I released the album, this track wasn't on it, mainly because a car had gone by in the middle, and there was also occasional wind distortion.
However, I listened to it later and thought it was so lovely and busy... so I cleaned it up, removed the car and the wind noise, added the sound of wind in a nearby hedge, recorded separately (without any distortion!) and I have put it at the bottom of the website home page as a free download.
The morning I recorded this, I got up about 5am and off I went to the nearest moorland, where I left the microphone set up and then disappeared, to avoid the birds being disturbed.
I came back an hour later and this is what I'd got - I've used 24 minutes from the middle of the recording.
Birds that appeared - (not including sheep and cows!)
Great black backed gull
