Wind can sometimes play havoc with recording --- BUT, with some luck you can get good wind recordings. Here is a recording of lake waves lapping at the short of a small lake in southern Illinois. This particular day, the winds were blowing steady out of the south at 25 miles an hour, with gusts even higher.
Recording made with my trusted Zoom H4N recorder, using its built-in microphones. Of course a foam wind-screen made this recording listenable. Without the foam wind-screen the recording would simply have been an obnoxious, unintelligable roar!
Also, since the waves were so loud to begin with, I did not have to crank the recording gain real high -- I had the gain only on 65 for this recording.
