Wonderful creaking oak tree. A nice 3-5 bft wind in this woods.

It's early spring and there are almost no leaves. Bare trees. One oak was hit by a lightning two years ago. It's dead now. The lightning made several long cracks in the tree trunk. Half of the crown is gone and now the wind is playing with the rest of it.
It sounds like a spooky horror door of an old shad or barn.

Longer track of this recording with this tree in winds up to 6bft.

Weather: wind WSW 3-5 bft, temp 14c, partly clouded, rime 1pm
Rode NT4 in Rode Blimp > Somy PCM D50
recorded: Woods of the Moerputten, Vlijmenseweg, 's-Hertogenbosch (Den Bosch), Holland (Netherlands)
