Catching the Bug iBook Review – posted 07/08/14

Several years ago I met Mark Constantine for the first time at Arne RSPB reserve whilst he was out sound recording with his wife Mo. They had been out recording Dartford Warbler for his new Sound Approach title (un-named back then) Catching the Bug, and I was intrigued within seconds. I knew the Sound Approach’s first and very much ground-breaking title ‘The Sound Approach to Birding’, but was thrilled to hear that there was going to be a new book coming out that wasn’t just focused on sound, but also mainly focused on Poole Harbour… AMAZING!

In 2012 the printed version of Catching the Bug was released and the Sound Approach including co-author Nick Hopper were yet again praised for another masterpiece. Two years down the line, time and technology have moved on and the Sound Approach have now started publishing their books digitally on iPad and the results are jaw dropping.

By bringing the Sound Approach on to this platform it allows them to interpret their sounds in the way they had always hoped. With the simple tap of the screen, or the swipe of your finger you invited in to an astonishingly well-crafted title that sits on the very brink of modern publishing. With their self-named eSonagrams, you can see the sounds as well as hear them, making the learning journey so much easier.

If you want to learn about Poole Harbour and its natural history then buy this book. If you want to learn about the fine details of Poole Harbours bird life then buy this book. If you want to be treated to 200 beautiful digital recordings then buy this book. If you love birds and love Poole Harbour…BUY THIS BOOK!
