The results of experimental and theoretical study of magnetic domain structure drift in low frequency oscillating magnetic field oriented perpendicular to the sample plate are presented. Experimental study was performed on uniaxial iron garnet (TbErGd)3(FeAl)5O12 (111) plate with rhombic anisotropy for the case when orientation of domain walls of stripe domains is preserved. Dynamic domain structure was revealed by means of magnetooptic Faraday effect and registered by high speed digital camera at the speed equal to 1200 fps. Theoretical model based on the motion equations for coupled harmonic oscillators that takes into account attenuation and field inhomogeneity along the plate is proposed.
