A foxy winner

We are pleased to announce the winner of the ASR Recording of the Month Competition is Tim Hannah of Swansea College.

Tim nominated a recording featuring the screams of a red fox recorded at Rye Grove, Surrey, saying “I love this recording because it reminds me of when I was a child living in a cottage in Hampshire.  My mother would comfort me whenever I heard this call as it would give me shivers of fright when I was in bed trying to get to sleep.”

To enter the Recording of the Month competition, simply pick your favourite recording from Archival Sound Recordings and send 50 words on why you love it to


Me too used to have the same experience in childhood, living near a secluded village, close to the wild.
