Thank you to all who joined us early this morning for a dawn chorus walk around the farm and to John Archer who led our walk. Birds were singing at full strength in the morning sunshine, which was shining brightly already by 5:30am. Wrens and robins were certainly among the most prevalent and conspicuous singers, but we also heard great tits, blue tits, black caps, monk parakeets, mistle thrushes, greenfinches, dunnocks, chiffchaffs and more. We even spotted a greater spotted woodpecker and grey heron flying overhead. Can’t think of a better way to celebrate International Dawn Chorus Day!
For those who couldn’t join us, you can get a glimpse of the sights and sounds of this morning in the brief clips below and the gallery on the next page.
This is just a selection of the photos from the morning. For more photos, please see the full set on flickr.
