Very calm area for sunrise on the outskirts of town on a foggy Sunday morning in Corona Lockdown.
Mist in nachtelijke buitenwijk stad
Long before the sun rises, the blackbirds are already awake and calls out to others to tell how beautiful 'they' are. The recording starts at 4:15 am. The sun rises at 7:27 AM.
Now it is still safe to leave my windjammer microphones outside unattended. Later in the season, the nesting birds pull out of the Windjammer to decorate their nests. This joke cost me money last year.

Environmental info:
Lots of trees, shrubs, ditches and almost empty streets.
About 1 km from here is a domestic container terminal, which sometimes gives sometimes some industrial background noise.
Far in the background the humming of the city and you sometimes hear some far traffic on the highway and a single car local, but most of them I took out neatly.
