Trickling stream, Highwoods Country Park, 2016
Recorded at around 4:00 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 is a close-up of a small stream in the woods, chipping away at the mud below. Joe had visited this site before and said there had been a larger flow of water running through a couple of days earlier, when it had been raining.
In the recording you can hear paramotors flying overhead. The sky around Colchester is very active, as Stansted is close by, as well as smaller local airports.
