This is an issue which comes up from time to time and appears to be inherent to how Google Maps labels particular locations. It may be that Google Maps uses tiles or polygons of quite a large area, and then names them in ways that reflect a view from Seattle rather than local knowledge. Nonetheless, adding geodata will mean that your recording appears in the right place on the UK SoundMap.

Hmm, still listed as Stoneybreck, Orkney...

I did but for some reason it appears as Orkney even though the map says Shetland...

Another excellent recording. (Our wildlife expert here tells me those are Arctic Terns.) Could you add some geodata please so we can include this on the UK SoundMap?
