I was close to the fence in my recording too, and I had a very similar experience with the wind in my recording. In real-time, its much easier to filter out the wind in order to hear people's voices and get a sense of the overall sound in the area, but the recording is much more sensitive to the wind, and it drowns out everything else.
That's interesting, I recorded inside and I came to an opposite conclusion, while listening initially I did not really hear other people talking very much but in the recording other people's conversations were very audible. I think that's probably because being inside I did not have the wind drowning out everything else that was happening during the recording.
I also recorded outside, and became more attentive to the sound of the wind after listening to my recording. What was interesting about this recording was that there was a constant talking or chattering in the background that never really stopped, and in the meantime it was the sound of the wind that grew louder and softer and then louder and softer again.
