Looking through my sound archive it seems that roughly a year ago i was in another sort of isolation on the spectacular far north-eastern coast of the Isle of Tiree (Inner Hebrides). I was perched within the cliffs on a surprisingly balmy Spring day when I recorded these fulmars, oystercatchers and gulls. Playing these back allows me to reimagine our enforced isolation with one taken by choice.
