This is a nature recording from a gray February winter day at Amager fælled (24th Feb. 2013), just a few kilometers from Copenhagen centre. This cold, quiet and colorless recording should be seen in contrast to the green and luxuriant scenes, at the exact same location during mid summer, as can be seen in this previous recording from last year.
The audio nature recording can be heard here (put on headphones for full experience)

I think winter is very quiet, and the quietness sharpens your ears. But the result is often, that the man-made city sounds becomes very pronounced. So that means on the recording, the audible sounds are dominated and various city sounds, metro, planes, road noise, ambulances. While the nature itself are here represented by noisy magpies.
The winter this year, 2012-2013 has had alternating periods of relative mild (+5C) and cold (+5C) weather. Now it is about 0C and windy. It even started to snow at the end.
