Rain trickling down on the mushy brown mud below deep in the thick bushlands. The mud swallowing anything in its path making everything dirty brown mud colour. You can bear high pitch squealing as kids run in the rain.
The birds chirping trying to find cover as the rain pours down. You can hear the rain dripping down from the giant trees in the dense bush. The soothing noise from the rain can put anyone at ease no matter how tense they are.
