Seán is a Cork-born ornithologist (BSc Zoology, MSc Marine Biology, MSc Ecological Assessment), who has been passionate about the natural world from the get-go.
After meeting his Catalan partner in Cork, they decided to move to Barcelona in 2018.
Inspired by the wealth of the wild soundscapes there, Seán took up sound recording, travelling all around the country, recording in his spare time. In January 2021, Seán brought his new-found passion back home with him, and decided to start up Irish Wildlife Sounds, to document, share and pay homage to the wild sounds of his home country.
Seán primarily records with a Dodotronic Hi-Sound Stereo Parabola paired with an Olympus LS-12 recorder, but, also uses Audiomoths to passively record in the field. His primary interests are birds but he also likes to record mammals and wild soundscapes.
