Frogs in pond and bird in the trees and bushes of the sea dunes.
The croaking of the frog comes in waves. When one starts the rest follows quickly after. In a few moments it is a loud concert. A normal concert takes about 5-7 minutes.
Because it is nice to be here you hear sometimes people talking in the distance.

It is recorded behind the dunes along the ''Zeeuwse kust'' (coast of province Zeeland) in the Netherlands, close to the hamlet ''Klein Valkenisse'' and ''Dishoek. It leis in an old water-collection area in the '' 't Waetermeschien estate''. Here I did record these frogs.

History Estate 't Waetermeschien and water-collection area

A large portion of the 8 acres wide estate is for the most part freely accessible for visitors, within the guided paths for safety reasons. Outside of the paths there are deep wells that are kept for prosperity but certainly can be dangerous.
The main house, how a holiday-cottage, where there used to be many pumps working day and night, (from as early as 1884) to ensure fresh water for the people of the area. Since 1995 the pump station has been shut down.
