Calm March afternoon at countryside, 4 pm close to village Cromvoirt in Holland. In January the sounds was different because it was winter at the same moment of the day. Now, after a few cold days, spring is in the air again. After there afternoon silence, and the four o'clock church-bell (the fifth minute), the birds start singing carefully. Farmers run around with there tractors to prepare there land.

(picture of the situation at that moment. ;-)

Situation on location (see geotag): Left a field where asparagus grow. You can hear the farmer with his tractor there. In front Small pine-trees (for Christmas) surrounded by deciduous trees. Behind me a channel with a wide polder and a path for bikes and mopeds. Right a local road. Wind coming mainly from the frontside and later from right.

Remarkable sounds;
