Really nice, and it appeared to be an excellent quality recording too. May I ask what you used to record the walk?

thank you! i use a zoom H5 with the SGH-6 capsule mic. i actually have to do quite a bit of EQing and filtering, as most of the time, sources are so distant that there's a ton of background/self noise, especially on windy days. i'd like to avoid doing so much post-processing, so i've been looking around for better quality shotgun mics and blimps/booms, but they get expensive very quickly.

They sure do. Field recording gets expensive very quickly. Highly rewarding though.
