Darß III

Posted Posted in blog

December 2017 I prefer to spend the winter time somewhere at the coast, where bird species accumulate much more than they do in the mainland. Since I live in the mainland, it amounts to short trips up north, favourably to the Darß peninsula. It was a bit of a bad timing this year, and way […]

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 […]

Little colourful jobs – Darß II

Posted Posted in blog

February 2013 During the first days of February I went to the peninsula Darß-Fischland-Zingst for the second time. I chose the February in hope to that both Owls and Woodpeckers are already in their courtship display. But it was still too cold and it rained/snowed nearly all the time. So I decided to devote my […]
