The life aquatic

August 2019

North of Berlin, just beyond the city boundary is a beautiful wetland called Tegeler Fließ.
Here the naturalist Alexander von Humboldt spent his childhood. Today, this area is not
only scenic impressive, it also home to a good number of bird species.
Since it is only 45 minutes away from my home, I often go there – during the post-breeding
season
in particular in order to make recordings of grasshoppers and aquatic insects.
This is a short excerpt of one of those underwater sound recording.
