Venice’s lagoon recording made with binaural microphones early in the morning for capturing the sound of a big Common Terns population on the salt marshes near Sant’Erasmo island. Salt marshes are part of the most characteristic and fragile environments of the lagoon ecosystem. They are consistent ground areas which are almost always above water and are only sometimes submerged. They enhance water exchange, lessen the action of wave motion and provide a home for both a wide variety of vegetation (typical of brackish water areas) and for a wide variety of bird life.
