    Equipment Note

The birds are flying in small groups of up to 5, although most birds are in pairs. Those that are in pairs are occasionally flying close together with one bird flying towards the other from behind and both birds posturing their bodies into a 45 degree angle by dropping their tail. The number of birds is an approximation.

LNS: Recording is from 1346-1419.
