Different recording locations have their own distinct characteristics and often require you to adapt your recording technique or setup to get the best results.
It's important to understand the basic lifestyle of any wildlife you want to record - its habitat, where, how and on what it feeds, times of year when it should be left undisturbed, times of day or weathers when it will be absent or hiding, any hazards it could present to the recordist and whether it's protected by law.
