A beautiful winter’s morning in Great Yarmouth. Join me on a walk down to the water’s edge.
Please ignore my sniffing and heavy breathing – it was cold! The sound of the calm sea, and the inevitable dog, made the journey all worth while.
This is a binaural recording, best head on headphones.

All you can hear are the sounds made by the sea on the rocks as the tide ebbs at Sheringham. The splaying and gurgling sounds is the sea filling rock pools and rushing between the heavy rocks.

For part of the Sounding Coastal Change Project in 2017, Year 6 pupils from the Pilgrim Federation of Church of England Primary Schools in Norfolk learned about sound recording.
During a couple of field trips they captured the sounds of birds and insects (and a lot of wind!) along the North Norfolk coastline. They also interviewed residents of Blakeney to capture their thoughts about living in the area.
This sonic snapshot was produced by me and first aired in July 2018 during the Sounding Coastal Change 24 hour broadcast.
Early July 2020 and the sea looks more gentle than it sounds.

Hydrophone placed about 6 inches below the sand at the shore line. The rustling is the sand moving across the microphone and you can also hear the rumble of the wind above ground.
