Location: Hyvelänjärvi, Lohja
Every year, the sounds we hear from Lohja are different, because the water situation is different. At this spot we wish to get forest sounds and sounds from shorebirds and waterbirds and geese etc. Hyvelänjärvi, in Nummi, is an agricultural area, and the fields in the area flood during the spring. Many birds like to rest there during their migration.
