This Sunday is #DawnChorusDay, a celebration of beautiful bird song. What have you heard where you are? #IDCD

Normally, we’d be holding early morning events on the reserve to get out and hear the wonder of bird song around the marshes. This would typically include the metallic zinging of reed warblers, the scratchy song flights of both sedge warbler and whitethroat, the slightly sorrowful reed bunting, the familiar cuckoo, the explosive Cetti's warbler, and even the waders and wildfowl joining in too.

But in gardens, parks and open spaces all around us you’ll be able to hear birds singing the Dawn Chorus. Just set the alarm (for about 5 or 6am), stick your head out the window and enjoy.
