As part of the research of our upcoming broadcast (Bedtime Monologues - Beautiful Soul (BS) Syndrome) - we visited Woodberry Wetlands to explore the nature reserve and its surroundings.
We spoke to a member of the London Wildlife Trust and they told us about the history of the area: controversies around its ownership, the modern developments around the area and a successful petition that was created in the late 20th century to protect the area and its wildlife. This all resonated with our ideas for the broadcast - especially the concept of anthropocentrism and alternatives such as ecocentrism. We are hoping to record an interview with someone from the LWT.
Our recordings were mainly captured with contact microphones and hydrophones. Below are two audio clips to give an idea of what we got up to:
The next destination that we are visiting will be Walthamstow Wetlands.
