Rainy and windy winter night in the forest, January 27th

All night audio recording from my usual tree in Brøndbyskoven, 27-28 January 2018.

The weather forecast predicted a bit of passing rain and picking up winds during the night, so it sounded like a good chance to capture a typical winter night atmosphere in a Danish forest.


The tree ears microphones ready for the night’s recording.

However, it turned out to be a bit more than expected. Instead of just quick showers, it turned out to be 3 hours of substantial rain and wind. Sitting at home following the weather, I was getting really certain that the equipment would not survive this time. But surprisingly, it was still recording in the morning when I came back. See the images below for details of the tree-ears microphone setup.

The clip starts 0:40 am and ends 2:50 am. In the beginning in rains and the wind has picked up. A falling tree can be heard at 10 min. Around 1:30 h into the clip the rain gradually declines  leaving the sound of occasional strong wind gusts passing through the forest.

Temperature 5C, wind from SW, windy and quite heavy rain for 3 hours around midnight. Standard tree-ears microphone setup with extra layer of nylon wind protector.
