Sea Shore Birds

Jean C Roché

On this CD the listener can become absorbed in 62 minutes of the fascinating world of sounds of seabird colonies recorded at a few remarkable coastal sites.

  1. A rocky Norwegian coast
  2. The Brittany Island of Rouzic - 1
  3. The Brittany island of Rouzic - 2
  4. A rocky outcrop on the Cotentin coast, Normandy, France
  5. Dumet island on the Atlantic coast of France
  6. Riou island on the Mediterranean coast of France

This CD can be used as a "sound identification guide" thanks to its numerical indexing; each index corresponds to the call of a single species, in the foreground of the recording; thus distinct from the general concert. Some species are indexed on more than one concert so that it is possible to discover a greater variety of calls made by a single species. 66 min.
