Four Irish Lads Talk Birds and Birding

    Episode 12

    Episode 12

    We had the great pleasure to interview multi-award winning sound recordist Simon Elliott.  Simon specialises in  high quality, close up wildlife vocabulary recordings and shares with us some of his favourite pieces from a lifetime of recording the natural soundscape. He takes us from the Scottish Highlands (Osprey, Capercaillie and Golden Eagle) to The Great Barrier Reef (Wedge-tailed Shearwaters) and even a carpark in Costa Rica (Montezuma Oropendola). 
    Get those headphones out as this is a special one!

    Back after a two month hiatus. No guests or special topics this time, just the four lads winging it and trying hard to salvage something from a less than vintage autumn.

    Our little Podcast has reached its 21st epsiode and what better way to mark this milestone than by sitting down to chat with one of the finest out there, none other than Yoav Perlman. He tells us about his formative years birding in Israel, we reminisce on his time studying and birding in the UK and some of his favourite memories from those days. We talk about his blog, his photography and his collaboration and deep friendship with the late Martin Garner. There's also his 'Big Year' and of course the excellent 'Champions of the Flyway'.  An episode not to be missed.

    We were very excited to have the opportunity to sit down and chat with one of the finest bird artists out there. Hans Larsson tells us how his interest in birds and drawing first began. He talks about his collaborations with Klaus Malling Olsen illustrating the identification guides to Terns, Skuas and Jaegers and Gulls of Europe, North America and Asia and more recently on the much anticipated "Seabirds - The New Identification Guide"  with Peter Harrison and Martin Perrow.

    In any other episode stories of Least Terns, Short-billed Dowitchers, European Rollers and Pacific Golden Plovers would be enough to occupy us completely and that's without our ramblings on Tayto Park and the Patagonia Picnic Table Effect. 
    However, this episode is really about about Sean's two stonking nocmig records. First of all he digs out a Baillon's Crake in Wicklow (Ireland's 5th record if accepted) and a week later he outdoes himself when he comes across a Semi-Palmated Plover down on the Mizen Peninsula - the lad is on fire!!
