The Wildlife Sound Recording Society held its annual general meeting this week, during which the results of their Field Recording Competition were announced. A big thank you to the judges for selecting one of my recordings as runner-up in the restricted category for habitats - it was an honor to be included on an impressive roster of winners and qualifiers, including the President of the WSRS, Chris Watson.
Here's the recording, of whip-poor-wills and several amphibian species on the edge of a hidden lake in Massachusetts, shortly after dark in early June 2021. It was recorded with the Audio-Technica BP4025 stereo mic that has been my stalwart sidekick for 15 years.
