I went for a walk at one of the local beaches and decided to record a little. There was almost no wind at all, but some waves still. After walking for about half an hour, i found a perfect spot, right beside a lot of seagulls and their nestlings.

Slowly and quietly i placed my recorder, without scaring the birds away. And after walking away, i could see the birds running around the mic. Around two minutes (plus minus) into the recording, you can actually hear the small and quick steps all around.

The rest is all about waves, and hearing the big seagulls. Enjoy!

Recorded with a zoom h2.

    I'm lost when it comes to the subject of birds, so you tell me just about anything klankbeeld :D

    But it was a remarkable thing to see. I'll link to my Flickr later, when I'm back home. It's a crummy picture, but it'll have to do.
