I've traveled with Santiago for three austral summers and his humour and humanity have buoyed my moods while his perspectives on the birds we encountered opened my eyes to biological vistas I'd previously not spotted due to my focus on the mud. I only just met John Marsden ten minutes before pressing record but his tales of high latitudes aviation warrant further attention than the ten minutes afforded at Seaworks. I hope to spend a lot more time in company with these people in the future but until then here's a sonic record of our encounters. And some faux advertising to let you know what I've saved you from/what you're missing out on. Next month, the BGLE get moving.
