Sennheiser MKH 60
Boom pole array
Typically on the day when we are staying with friends who live right out in the middle of nowhere it rains. So on the morning when I was hoping to get some nice clean early morning bird sounds without the contamination of nearby roads or people the whole bush is quiet as a grave. I tried to record their chickens but I think even they were sulking over the weather. I did record a small amount of material, but I am suspecting its going to be of very limited use.
