Papa D singing in the Hyphen of the Nautilus on September 5, 2018. This was sung standing. Corky’s footsteps are present in the background.
Frogs croaking on The Avenue around dusky. The sound of the waves is faint. This was recorded north of the largest of the dunes along the avenue. Recorded in May, 2018
Crickets either on The Avenue north of the hill or on the road behind the Usher House. Recorded in May, 2018.
Birds either on The Avenue north of the hill or on the road behind the Usher House. Unsure of the time, though I would guess either mid morning to early afternoon.
The sound of waves about 100 yards to the south of the Avenue. Recorded as the sun was rising on one of the last days on the island in May, 2018. X-Y microphones were facing the waves and the recording was on a tripod in the sand. Avonlea, Aberdine, and I watched the sunrise north of the recording.
These sounds were recorded before and during the sunrise and includes the call of multiple Chuck-will’s-widow on the Avenue. Recorded on or at the bottom of the largest dune forming the hill on The Avenue in May, 2018.
