On Thursday 13th July 2023, Paul Pratley, former Chairman of the Wildlife Recording Society, gave 7 Members of Devon Birds a full understanding of the equipment and techniques needed to capture the sounds of wildlife. It was a day of interesting facts and tips delivered by an expert. The group took some of the recording equipment to the fields alongside the river Exe at Brampford Speke and recorded bird song and other sounds for later analysis in the workshop. A practical demonstration of the techniques needed to edit and modify the recordings was demonstrated in the classroom. Members benefited from a rare opportunity to learn and understand the skills necessary in making clear sound recordings of the calls of birds and the sounds of wildlife generally.
The Second Workshop originally scheduled for Saturday 23rd July 2023 is cancelled.
