weird noises detected with hydrophones buried in the sea-dune at the Dutch coast.

The mics are 5cm under the surface, close to the beach-huts.

What you hear;

Sand falling down from the dunes, because of the hole I have made.
Bouncing noise of people in the beach-huts.
Noise of the wind trough the sand-reed (marram).
Noise of an eating animal/insect under the sand (sounds like scratching wood)

Gear chain: two Aquarian Audio Hydrophones H2a XLR 3m > Sound Devices 302 >Tascam dr-100 Mk2.

When you use this sound it would be nice if you spent a voluntarily donation to freesound.
YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO CREDIT/ATTRIBUTE me (klankbeeld) and freesound.org in your work if you use this sound. Do not use an indirect link. Do not simply copy/past elsewhere on the internet please. Thank you.
