Jackdaws and crows leave their nests every morning and fly to Black Isle to feed. In the evening, soon after sunset they all come back to their roosts in Craig Phadrig Forest. Huge flock swarms over the Beauly firth and Caledonial Canal until they reach their nesting sites in the woods. It is a spectacular view and it’s also a spectacular sound. This 15 minutes recording was captured one evening in mid December.
Recorded using Marantz PMD660 recorder and Sennheiser MD46 cardioid microphone. Edited in Audacity.
