Cuckoo in the Forest

Jun 01, 2016, 02:13 PM

Part of a dawn chorus, recorded near Rothbury, Northumberland, from 3.30am on 28th May 2016. An amazing single take, 3 hours long, without a single interruption - no wind, no planes, no cars, no quad bikes, not even a dog. Love the way the cuckoo reverberates off the forest edge. There are still some quiet places in England! MKH60s at 30 degrees/100m cable/SD302/SD722. #cuckoo #dawn #nature #northumberland
