═ nßgrenni mÝnu eru nokkrir svart■restir sem hefja tˇnleikahald um mßna­amˇtin mars-aprÝl. Umfer­arni­urinn veldur ■vÝ a­ erfitt er a­ hljˇ­rita ■ß frß sv÷lum h˙ssins.

Me­fylgjandi hljˇ­rit er frß tˇnleikum sem hˇfust um kl. 03:12. Ůa­ er eitthva­ rˇandi vi­ fjarlŠgan fuglas÷ng.

Eins og hljˇ­ritarar vita heyrast řmis hljˇ­ ß nŠturnar sem vi­ t÷kum ekki eftir ß daginn. LoftrŠstikerfi nŠsta h˙ss heyrist vel. Dregi­ var ˙r hßva­anum me­ ■vÝ a­ skera af 100 ri­um.

IN ENGLISH

mThe blackbirds nearby our house start their concerts normally in ghe beginning of April. The noise from the trafic makes it difficult to recofd them during the rush-hours.

On the night before May 9 2017 2 Sennheiser ME62 were left on the balcony with 39 cm interspace. This episode started around 03:12. A distant recording like this is in some way a little charming.

As recordists know some sounds, not heard during the day, become audible at night. Ghe ventilation system of the nearby appartment hous is quite audible. The noise was reduced by cutting off 100 Hertz.

Stundarkorn ß Seltjarnarnesi - A short while at Seltjarnarnes

Ůa­ er jafnan endurnŠrandi a­ ganga hring um Seltjarnarnesi­. ┴ sumrin er fuglalÝf miki­ og n˙ er krÝan Ý essinu sÝnu.

In English

It is always refreshing to take a walk along the hiking trail around the Seltjarnarnes area west of Reykjavik. The birdlife is rich during the summer time. The arctic tern is quite common and the sound of the eiderducks and the chicks revives one's best feelings.

At around 11 pm on July 7 2016 there was moderate breeze from north-west. I decided to catch some of the environmental sounds. Some pedestrians and people biking can be heard as well as a nervous redshank.

á

The recorder was an Olympus LS-11. The mics were covered by small foamshields and a dead kitten from R°de.

The recording is 24 bits, 44,1 kHz. The download might therefore be a little slow.
