Natures Orchestra – Wind Section

Category Audio

While at Middleton for a few days, Kerry & I stopped in at Goolwa. Since it was a bit too windy for recording anything quiet, I thought I’d try recording the blowing flags outside the Goolwa Information Centre.

Between vehicles driving into the car park, just to the right of the flags, and over the nearby Hindmarsh Island bridge, I managed to get some usable sound.
