Hello Jo,
I think that the mw for this thread has the incorrect word count for section 03 & section 17.
Section 03, 2961 wc, is 6 pages while section 17, 4506 wc , is only 1.
I have claimed both sections and it has given me the opportunity to look at those sections more closely.
Hopefully there are no other sections with the same issue. I will still record both happily, I just wanted to apprise you of the error that I found.

Section 15 has already been claimed, April. Let me know if you meant to claim a different section. Meanwhile, I'll put you in for section 3.
Helloo,
Thank you for putting me in for section 3 though I am wondering if you saw my reply to the 2nd section I would like to claim, which is section 17; The Beauty of a storm and also my mention of the wc being mistaken for both of those sections and why I think it is.
Good day to you,

It's probably just a typo on my part, April. The word counts are just there while the project is in progress to give prospective readers an idea of the length. I've put you in for 17.

Phil:

Section 14 is PL-OK! Very nicely done!

Section 15...one small correction at 1:02 I heard "rushing rills" : I expected "gushing rills"

Many thanks,

Philip

Phil:

Section 15 beautifully corrected and PL-OK! (I've been trapped in an alliterative avalanche from time to time myself, although usually it's my tendency to be redundant and repeat myself which gets me in trouble.)

Sections 2 & 4 are also PL-OK. Nicely done!

Many thanks,

Philip

Thank you, Jo. I just thought life was happening for you and that you'd get to it when you could.

And thank you Philip for the quick PL's. :thumbs:

May I take section 7, The Northern Phalarope, please?
If I have questions about pronunciation, may I ask them here or is there another section of the forum for that kind of thing?
