With big thanks to British Library of Wildlife Sounds who have held the original recording since 1990, and now kindly digitised for us to share, though the wind noise limited its use until J P Gautier, J P Richard Magnus and Magnus Robb worked their magic on it - see XC398794. • See sonogram and notes of the recording circumstances on p12 of Gretton A. (1991) The ecology and conservation of the Slender-billed Curlew (Numenius tenuirostris). (Monogr. 6.) International Council for Bird Preservation, Cambridge, U.K. • Was the recording modified significantly? No • Habitat: Short vegetation on sandy ground next to the wetter marsh fringing the lagoon. • Behavior: Called coming into land, with some N. arquata. • Plumage: the 3 birds present during that winter were all adult males – numerous photos and some video available. • Anything else that may have affected the bird's singing behavior (light conditions, weather, etc.) Not really
