In the Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, there is a boy in the light world who plays a flute, and his presence in the dark world asks for you to find it.

He says it can be found in the light world, in a grove where he used to play (which is the same place as where he is located in the dark world), and that he has buried it there.

I have teleported back to the light world and dug up most of this grove but still haven't found it, I remember it being somewhere around the tree stump but as you can see it's not there:

Is the location of the flute randomised or am I just looking in the wrong place?

  • @KatieK just using the Windows 8 snipping tool, it's also available in Windows 7 - I'm playing the game via an emulator though which makes it easier!

The flute's location is not randomized. It is located in the upper left corner of that area by some flowers.
