Sounds of Hermaness NNR, Unst.

Here are a couple of recordings I made on yesterdays trip to Unst.

The Gannet colony was very noisy, and that's what the din in the background of the first recording is! This racket was made from the calls of hundreds of birds echoing around the cliffs. It's only a short 11 sec clip, but it conveys the noise the colony was making quite well! (just be glad I can't reproduce the smell also)...

Next up is the Great Skuas, with a particularly aggressive bird defending it's territory. There is also a Meadow Pipit trying to sing as well as a wee bit of wind noise (to say it was very windy would be an understatement!)
