If you want to use any of the recordings, then you must first visit the link and read carefully.

Two important aspects of the licence: first, you must attribute any recordings used to New Forest Sounds.

Second, the non-commercial part of the licence means you can’t use the recordings for any purpose where you’re seeking to make a profit or expecting to be paid. Please don’t disregard that rule.

Projects which use my recordings may include non-commercial scientific research, educational resources, freely-distributed music and podcasts, for example. Do drop me a line using the contact page form and let me know if you find a good use for them.
