Calm meadowland ambience with sounds of people talking far.
Dozens of people (and kids) in small groups enjoy and walk in a natural reserve and polder in the Netherlands.  It's a beautiful Sunday afternoon on a nice cold winter day.
Around me meadowland with on the right hand side a footpath on 50m were the people walk. In front on 400m an old railway track which is now a part of the route. Behind me 5 farms on 300-500m. Some local roads / traffic far < 300m. Geese sometime audible in the distance. A lonesome crow calling for a friend. Prop- and jet-plane in the distance.
This last windy part of 30 minutes sounds very cold, but it was not. It's nice to hear the father singing soldiers songs for his family the last 5 minutes.

Weather info: sunny, wind 1-3bft, S-SSE, after 24 minutes changing more ESE 3-4bft (sometimes audible in mic), temp 2c. Microphone direction N.
