Raw audio of footsteps in twigs, bracken and other dry foliage when straying off of a footpath. The recorder was pointed at my feet, about 1 meter away.

This sound is NOT in the public domain. You MUST attribute/credit the sound if you use it. If you would prefer to not have to give attribution, then take a look at the attribution-free license.

An example of how you might credit is by putting this in the description/credits:

If any of these sounds have been of help, and you are feeling charitable, please do consider donating to Freesound to help keep the site running (a link is also on the home page). Any donations are greatly appreciated! And for more awesome sounds, do please check out my sound libraries or SFX store.

Please comment on where you intend to use the sound, and feel free to post a link to the work where you used it if you want (I enjoy watching/listening to anything you create!)

The sound was recorded using a "Zoom H6 (MS) recorder" on 16th February 2018.

Note: Audio quality is always better when downloaded.

    Thank you for the recording! It's part of a grouping of sounds (forest birds / insects; babbling brook) that I've downloaded from here to combine as my 'sound floor' on top of which I will be improvising and ambient composition for myself, this morning. It'll be being posted for public consumption to my bandcamp site. My 'band name' for ambient is under Assparragus (pron. Ass - puh - RAHH - goose)

    I've copied your requested credits listing, to include in the track:

    Nice! Did you use the built-in mics on the H6?
