Last January, I was excited to try the Telinga MK2 Kit in the northern forest! I used it along with a Sennheiser MKH8090.
I took advantage of being in an uncrowded surrounding like this winter snowy forest.
Although it was a little too quiet, I successfully recorded some crows. I have to say that the conditions are not ideal to stay still for long hours as it is cold and had no tripod to hold the dish firmly.
