My scientific as well as my artistic work is based on a wide range of motivations and ways of approaching the sound of the so called natural world – regardless, whether it’s the sound of an entire habitat or a single animal or the fundamental sounds of the elements.

    Regular visitors to my blog will know that one of my favourite nature reserves is
    a former military training area south of Berlin (see: Scorched Earth I)
    After a massive fire some years back, new flora is now showing up and with it first
    larger fauna. One species was always present even right after the big fire, is the
    Eurasian Nightjar Caprimulgus europaeus. This bird species prefers an open, dry
    landscape with little ground vegetation and prefers to hunt insects in flight.
    The overall behaviour of this species is remarkable, as it is highly specialised and
    the mostly nocturnal encounters are always something special. Since the species
    is not very shy, sometimes approach the observer very close one might even think
    they are 'curious'.

    Strong winds have been persisting for weeks, making wildlife sound recording outdoors almost impossible at the moment. Fortunately, there are birds that breed in buildings, like barn swallows. In this case, even in an observation tower in a nature reserve.

    One of my favourite songs among Eurasian songbirds. Often not recognised as a song, it is nevertheless complex and sometimes even contains imitations - as here from the Black Woodpecker.
