July 2019 It took a few years to return to Iceland. This time though without the silly, eurocentric image and personal projections of the ‘untouched paradise’ that so many bring along – like me, back in 2015. -> So this time I could very well accept mass tourism, large-scale construction projects (especially roads) and the […]

Darß IV

Posted Posted in blog

April 2019 Regular readers of my blog will know, I really like the peninsula Darss in Northeast Germany and go there as often as I can. During all of my visits, the target sound-wise has been always the same: calls of small passerines. But beside particular intentions I always simply enjoyed the tranquility in those […]

February 2019 Israel is, that is well known, THE place for bird migration enthusiasts. Therefore alone, a trip was on my bucket list for quite a long time. In addition I was also curious about the native mammals, reptiles and of course the landscape in general. My only real duty were flight call recordings of […]

Winter – Drömling VIII

Posted Posted in field note

March 2017 In February I made a brief intermediate stop at my favorite sound recording spot in Germany, on my way to an offshore trip. I had expected lots of wintering nordic geese, Whooper Swans Cygnus cygnus and hoped for Bewick’s Swans Cygnus bewickii which flight calls we desperately needed for our birds-in-flight ID guide. Here only a few impressions of those days in the field. […]

Greifwalder Oie V

Posted Posted in blog

February 2017 End of December 2016 I went to the baltic isle Greifswalder Oie for the 5th time. My intention was to collect more sound recordings for two upcoming releases with unprocessed sound recordings from the baltic region. The winter was far too mild for that time of the year and wouldn’t force too many […]
