LINKS TO OTHER RESOURCES ON THE WEB

There are lots of web-based sources of information on wildlife sounds, this list does not even come close to covering them all - but here are some that I find useful - many of them contain their own links pages for onward connections. If you have one I should include (yours or another) please let me know


To get technical help and advice from other recordists:

The Yahoo! Nature recordists group is where I learned a lot of techniques: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/naturerecordists/

This group grew from the above but is focused only on sounds: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Naturerecording/
