Wonderful ambiance of a pine-forest (90%), winter, daytime (11.30 pm), Holland, 7c, 0-2 bft. Railway far on 700 meters.

What you hear;
General; general forest ambience / hum with woodpeckers searching for foods, ticking softly on the trees. Sometimes you hear them call far away. A few other wood-birds. The deep hum sounds of electric trains far away coming closer.

Between the village Boxtel, Oisterwijk and Oirschot, province Noord-Brabant in Holland is a nature area called Kampina. It's a mixture of woods, moorland and stream valley's and is 1200 hectare wide. It's a silence area, what means that the general noise is below 34dBA. Very quiet for Dutch concept but never without human made noise.

    Amusingly, this sound has become the background of a 3D animated scene set in the desert of New Mexico.
