Terrific! And the rumble of traffic is barely audible, which makes me zealous (this recording would be impossible in noisy Sevilla). Wanted to let you know: I looked at this file in an editor and it seems your capsules are slightly unmatched, the right one yields about 2 dB less output.... just like my own WL183. I often need adding this gain in post to get the original stereo image :-(
You've beaten the record, no wav-file bigger than this one on freesound, I guess! My challenge was to be the first to download, I hope not to be the only. Well since free time became rather limited for me in this spring, You gave me the chance to listen to that wonderful dawn chorus. Thanx for sharing!
This symbolisese the strange world of the field recorder. Is the mixture of extranneous noises a problem or is it beauty in another form. I think the latter. The skylark is a species under threat from modern encroachment. This IS its world now and it finds a place among the machines but the joy is it is singing as only the skylark can. It survives. I had a similar experience last year when the song of the skylark was drowned out by nearby industry. I think that seeing a skylark fall fluttering and singing from the sky in its staged dive is as good as life gets.
