Listening to nature

Tawny Frogmouth

The Tawny Frogmouth has a distinctive call

In December we had were fortunate to have Andrew Skeoch speak to our members about the evolution of sound and listening. Animal sounds and bird song have adapted to specific environments and habitats and Andrew gave a very interesting and informative talk about the work he does and some of his observations.

Together with his partner Sarah they have a business called Listening Earth and they travel widely recording natural sounds. His talk opened our ears and minds to what goes on in the natural world around us.

If you missed the talk or are interested in listening to another of his talks, here is the link from ABC radio recorded recently at the Woodford Music Festival.

Thanks to Geoff Park for alerting us to this interview through his blog Natural Newstead.
