4. Sound like an alley with high walls, very reverberant at 1:35 a ferocious dog barks near recordist who quietly tries to get the dog to stop barking (the space is so reverberant it almost echoes). Unsuccessful in her efforts other dogs in various distances and pitches join in to create a symphony of barking which lasts to 3:20.
4:00 a car passes, the main dog comes in again then fades out at end of take. Unfortunately there is occasional but obtrusive mic noise in the first 2:00 min.
7:56 mill whistle; 14:39 whistle more distant.
19:00 distant plane.
