Seal meets Sound Recordist

I was out recording the ocean on the South Coast of Wellington the other day & had an unexpected chance to record some seal vocalisations… The best parts of that coast are only really accessible by a long, long walk from Owhiro Bay… or to use a 4WD. I’ll justify my carbon emmissions by saying I took lots of equipment with me, but while I was wandering around recording waves I almost stood on this seal… And I smelt him just before I saw him.. and sheesh did I smell him after he opened his mouth!!!

As far as frights go: seal 1, sound recordist Nil
