Share and share alike

IF YOU’VE READ the earlier post about William Cheshire’s Sounds Like Leigh-on-Sea sound blog, you’ll maybe have spotted an overlap in the area he’s covering and part of the London Sound Survey’s new Estuary section.

He’s very kindly agreed to allow a couple of his recordings to appear here in exchange for my two Canvey Island recordings being added to Sounds Like Leigh-on-Sea.
