Pine-forest with almost no wind between 0-2 bft at daytime / winter / February / Holland.

It starts with the church-bell from the village church Drunen, 3 km away at the north, calling people to the Holy Mass. I like to hear this when the wind blows the sound away sometimes. Sometimes it is loud sometimes it's not. Listen..
Several woodpecker searching for insects under the bark of the trees and do there first cautiously spring hammering, telling others that this is 'my' territory.
Tit singing / calling sometimes, but it's clear that spring is still far away for them, even the are the first singers normally.
Dogs barking in the distance. And obvious a (more) high altitude plane(s).
Craws there.
Several woman pass, always noisy, man are more quiet in the woods. Is it because of there higher voices?
Do I here a robin, always difficult to determinate by the song. It's possible because they start singing the end of winter, early in spring, this time when the sun is there.
A woman on a horse is passing on the frozen sandy path. The horse is afraid of my equipment-bag standing there. The tits start calling when he pass. And an other plane is coming.
And there are some other woman..... I like them, but not in the woods. When the are gone it becomes quiet, peaceful for 5 minutes.
Play this on a low level, because it was quiet.
