Come Rain or Shine

Cheryl Tipp, Natural Sounds Curator, writes:

32 new field recordings have recently been added to our online Weather collection. All were recorded by long term contributor and Wildlife Sound Recording Society member, Dr Simon Elliott. The majority of his personal archive focuses on species specific recordings but the meteorological behaviour of our planet has not escaped the reach of Simon's microphones. The following audio gems are just a few examples from the collection:

Strong wind buffeting a deer fence on the Isle of Mull, Scotland

Deer fence scotland

The approach of a thunderstorm


A tropical downpour on the Caribbean island of St Lucia

To hear more of Simon's recordings, alongside examples from other recordists, please visit Weather. We hope you enjoy these new sounds as much as we do.
