Hailstones and rain heard from inside a shipping container, Ballycurrin, Co. Galway, Ireland on 1st May 2020 – by Alan Meaney

“After a few days of sunny weather, the clouds darkened in the morning and I anticipated rain.  I grabbed my recorder and made my way into the shipping container which acts as as a makeshift shed in our back garden.  The hailstones and heavy rain came in waves before lightening off to give way to birdsong.”
