There's a little creek in my neighborhood just up the block from my home. I took my grandson down with me last week and we cautiously made our way down a steep embankment to get to it. I was a bit weary of snakes so I was checking things out pretty closely. Fortunately, we didn't see any. Using my Sony PCM D100, and squatting over some large rocks, I was able to capture a nice stereo recording of the creek water running. It's another nice, soothing, background sound.
Here is the actual recording: Babbling Creek Water
