Birdsong, children playing, and distant traffic noises in the forest
The forest in Highwoods Country Park, Colchester
Recorded at around 3:30 pm whilst on a walk in Highwoods Country Park with Photographer Joe-Elliot Purtell. Microphones were configured in a 110 degree ORTF stereo array.
This recording contains sounds of crows and other woodland birds being rather noisy, and the occasional jogger or dog-walker passing by. The weather was warm, and it was a sunny day. In the distance is the sound of children and dogs playing deeper in the woods. This helps define the space and acoustics of place.
