I started getting emails at the day job about World Curlew Day. It had a lovely logo. Curlews have such a distinctive call, the potential for a podcast rose gradually across the office Outlook screen. The emails came from Mary Colwell, and her website revealed her to be a very experienced broadcaster. Podcast tip: interview a radio producer, they know what makes a good interviewee!
I made a point of getting this episode out fairly snappish to be part of the hashtag #WorldCurlewDay, up to 21 April. This is running across different social media platforms, with a bias of course for photos, so here’s an audible contribution.
I’ve been avoiding actually describing the episode. And will continue on that path.
This episode includes audio from Xeno-Canto, (which probably should be an episode in its own right); in this case, it’s XC344313 by Patrik Åberg, released under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0, and that means that this episode is covered by the same licence too.
