The library is accompanied by a comprehensive list covering more than 80 identified species. Mammal highlights include Bushabies in trees, African Golden Wolves howling at night, Spotted Hyenas moaning and grunting and Guinea Baboons barking, shrieking and growling. Avian highlights include Great White Pelicans recorded at their roost, the melodious whistle of the Yellow-crowned Gonolek, the ever-present cooing of various species of doves, the raspy croaks of herons, egrets and storks, the immense variety of songbirds and many others. To top it off, a variety of insects were calling at all times, occasionally at unbelievably loud levels. All this comes together to form an incredibly varied, detailed and immersive soundscape, as you can hear in the accompanying audio and video demos.

    I have never been to Senegal, but if ever do get there I will be disappointed if it doesn’t sound like George’s recordings.
    Deep and rich choruses, with insects that stack like the instruments of an orchestra, George’s recordings never fail to impress or educate me.

    A stunning collection. There is a wide variety of rich, emotive ambiences, all flawlessly recorded. My personal favourite is the pelican breeding colony, never heard anything like it! Try pitching it down for something truly monstrous!
