There may be something useful here ...
do any of you know if there is a cd i can find that has sound of the countryside at night ?
ideally looking for owls hooting/cries, wolf howl,thunder/rainfall etc.
am wanting to compile an image file of woods,castles,misty forrests etc with the sounds in the background.
NOT music,just natural sounds .
i can find various things on you tube but dont know how to put all the seperate clips toether to form ONE
thought there might be a natural/horror sound cd already available ?
any ideas chaps ?
managed to find the sounds on you tube...but dont know how to edit them so they run continuously as apposed to single tracks ?
There is a very good one from some of my fellow members of the Wildlife Sound Recording Society. It's called Sounds of the Night: An Audio Guide to Britain's Nocturnal Species and is available here:
And here's a link to a review by Chris Yates on the Caught by the River blog.

I wrote this on a thread on The Mausoleum Club Forum last month [BBC Recording Equipment - 25/05/12 at 14:51]:
"You'll find the British Library Sound Archive website's Wildlife Collection page has useful links - see the sideboxs on the right: Related content and External links, the latter giving a link to the Wildlife Sound Recording Society.
You should be able to get answers to your questions from those places."
I then added this, which I had intended mentioning on the thread about the Universe here, as the evening referred to was highlighted by a chance to see the whole of the night sky, including a very good view of the Milky Way and the Constellations from a high point above my home town with its finale of a somewhat less uplifting nature...:
"Following an experience last year, when a very pleasant walk on a still Summer's evening was marred at its end, as I came to the outskirts of the home town noted to the left, by the unmistakeable sound of two members of the species homo sapiens mating - noisily - sounding over the fields, I could ask whether modern wildlife recordists have problems with their equipment being so good it picks up irrelevant items like that."
cheers lads - awsome respons here thanks so much. H
