Sunday 4th May 2014: Dawn Chorus

The weather forecast had predicted frost but our Dawn Chorus Walk was actually greeted with a mild and bright spring morning.         Wildlife Explorers and their families gathered at Ladderstile Farm at 6am, some still a little sleepy, to celebrate International Dawn Chorus day and enjoy the incredible birdsong typical of this time of year.           The session started with an introduction to birdsong by Dave. He played the songs of 12 birds we were likely to hear on our walk. (We’ll all remember to listen for collared doves calling out, “United!”).   … Click here for more information…..
