This relaxing beach-recording starts 6am spring.

Picture made from the sea-dunes

A beach at the sea-port from the North-sea in Holland to the river Schelde that leads to the harbour of Antwerp in Belgium. As you can see on the picture we have summer-houses on the beach, as big as a sea-container, to live in during spring and summer. After the season he will be removed to a storage-site.

The recording is made from my balcony 100m from the sea-shore.
Because it is so early several kind of bird are there; Jackdaw, Arctic Tern, Black-backed Gull, Black headed gull and oyster catcher.
Because the sea-lane is on a few hundred meters from the coast you can hear the deep humming of the large seagoing ships passing.

Later on the recording you hear a truck providing the beach-clubs that are here every few hundred meters.

Recorded between 6-8 am, April 28th, 2014, Westduin, province Zeeland, the Netherlands (Holland), Europe.
Weather: Wind 2-4 bft coming from land.
