When recorded in 1990 this was the only known recording made of a solo dingo howling in the wild. Powys recorded the dingo sounds early in the morning at Palm Valley in Finke Gorge National Park, Northern Territory, during a winter camping trip. She used a Sony Cassette Walkman and two ‘tie-pin’ microphones at a distance of only a few metres as the curious dingo approached her campsite. Powys is a landscape artist who has been recording nature and studying wildlife since the 1980s. She is a key member of the Australian Wildlife Sound Recording Group.
