Red Crosbill 'type D' flight calls
Red Crosbill 'type C' flight calls
A selection of the latest sound recording I have made during my stay on the island of Hällögern, Västerbotten. High summer is not the best time to be birding at this location and opportunities for sound recording are not great. In addition, there is much noise pollotion in the area due to boat engines, jet skiing, human disturbance and chainsaws. Nevertheless, some decent recordings have been downloaded to Xeno-Canto in the last few days, which I have posted here. The Black-throated Loon and Crossbill recording were recorded in the early hours after sunrise, which is currently at 03.00am. The Kestrels are breeding on the island, as are a pair of Oystercatcher, which have recently fledged a single juvenile.
