Great recording. I think the cockerel gives it a nice touch. It's not so far up in the mix that it's seriously obnoxious. You don't notice the traffic much after a while. No major close prospect stuff from that corner.
Ah yes. there's plenty of new - but I haven't yet worked out my best way to maintain Freesound involvement. I'm concentrating on setting up commercial CDs of my recordings at CreateSpace at the moment, and actually this recording is on one of them, together with later Beeny Cliff recordings. Didn't get any response from Bram when I sent him a PM to see if he had any views about that.
