On a Monday at noon in a riverside village in the Netherlands in March.

Its a wonderful spring day. The temperature is 17c and the sky is clear. I have my microphone places behind a 1m high wall on the graveyard of the small church.
Al kinds of birds (Blackbird, Collared Dove, Wood Pigeon, Jackdaw, Carrion Crow, and Starling) celebrate the end of the winter that never came.
People on bikes enjoy as well. Its calm and relaxing here.
Sometimes a car passing.
At the opposite site of the river the church-bell rings for a while.
On the river several ships pass. On small barge is collects wood wreck. I love these deep engine sounds here. It makes it so Dutch.
