The woodpecker and the motorway

Jan 31, 05:35 PM
"Normally you mainly hear traffic noise here, but now the birds dominate, including a woodpecker. The recording was made in April 2020 during the 1st Covid-19 intelligent lockdown, during the morning rush hour, about 300 meters away from an 8 lane highway. 

"The recording location is in a residential area in Waalre, near Eindhoven, in the south of the Netherlands."

Recorded by Peter de Wit.

Part of the StayHomeSounds project to map and reimagine the sounds of the Covid-19 lockdowns.
