Taking place on the first weekend of May, International Dawn Chorus Day is the worldwide celebration of nature’s greatest symphony. All across the world people rise early to revel in the sweet sound of birdsong, from rattling wrens in Rotherham to crooning cowbirds in the Caribbean. Dawn Chorus Day has grown from a small event in Birmingham in the 1980s to a global annual celebration, enjoyed in over eighty countries.
As part of International Dawn Chorus Day this year I’m joining other WSRS members from around the world in broadcasting the dawn chorus live.
The broadcast can be listened to from 5am on Saturday 2nd May on The Badgers Eye website and via the Wildlife Sound Recording Society map here and a live 24 hour broadcast of live recordings from dawn choruses following the sun can be listened to here.
