The Lincoln Booming

Captain Ahab has asked the question "What is the booming sound that appears at the University Moorings?"

I am unsure if it is the same noise but occasionally, and it is usually in the early hours of the morning, a noise is heard but this is just the sound of the swans making an early breakfast of the weed growing on the hull of the boat. It sounds quite loud and not a bit like something that can be blamed on a bird. But I have watched them during the day when the sound is made.

Anyone else have an answer?

If its a swan it cant be of the "mute" variery! Actually, is was such a low frequency as to be almost inaudible. It was kind of spooky.

We heard that "noise" the first time we moored in Lincoln. We never did get to the bottom of it but assumed it was from an industrial premises nearby. It almost sounded and felt like an earthquake
