June 19th, 2012

Recording with Sony PCM-M10 (using internal mics with Rycote Windjammer), on Penally Hill, Boscastle, Cornwall, UK, almost at the slight col that then leads on to the rugged Penally Point straight ahead. The recorder is pointed towards the seaward side of Penally Point, but is also catching some sea noise from its landward side and the slightly more distant cliffs on the other side of the mouth of Boscastle Harbour.

On this day (17th June 2012) the Atlantic swell was quite low and the sound pleasant but unspectacular, with the wind interfering a bit.

At one point two excited children can be heard - and it is the sort of place that would excite anyone who wasn't a completely dull 'sheep'!

Please note that the volume level of this recording has been carefully adjusted for listening purposes, and ALL my recordings so far are meant to be listened to with a volume setting that would give a realistic level for playback of CLASSICAL music (a large but not exceptional symphony orchestra). If you have the right volume setting, you should not need to change that setting from one recording of mine to another.
