I visited Boleskine a few weeks ago. It happened to be first truly warm and sunny weekend, just after the Spring Equinox. I did some sound recordings to capture the ambience and atmosphere of the place.

Crows & Jackdaws coming to roost at night.

Jackdaws and crows leave their nests every morning and fly to Black Isle to feed. In the evening, soon after sunset they all come back to their roosts in Craig Phadrig Forest. Huge flock swarms over the Beauly firth and Caledonial Canal until they reach their nesting sites in the woods. It is a spectacular view and it’s also a spectacular sound. Observing these birds coming back to their nests is an amazing experience. This 15 minutes recording was captured one evening in mid December.
