South Fremantle Dog Beach
This stream occurs at South Fremantle Dog Beach in the area called Walyalup by the traditional owners of this land, the Whadjuk Noongar people. We are in one of the most isolated cities in the world here in Western Australia. The beach is situated between two groynes so it it generally very flat. To the northern side there is a yacht club. To the south is a large park where dogs run, children play and swimmers enter the ocean. There is often a coffee van with a petrol generator. An industrial container train passes with goods for the Fremantle Port.
The larger birds commonly heard range from Seagulls, to Wardong (crows), White-tailed black cockatoos and Magpies. The smaller birds are Chitti Chitti (Willy Wagtails), honeyeaters and butcher birds.
My sound kit is a Zoom F6 with Line Audio OMNI mics, a LOM Geophone and a JRF contact mic.
