An early morning walk to hear the birds!!!

Join bird lovers all around the world by taking part in International Dawn Chorus Day at Bubbenhall Wood – the World’s Favourite Birdwatch! All around the globe people will be rising early to greet the rising sun and enjoy nature’s symphony. We will be conducting a bird survey as we walk, don't worry if you're not an expert; we'll have a couple of those with us! Celebrated on the first Sunday of May, the story goes that International Dawn Chorus Day began in the 1980s when broadcaster and environmentalist Chris Baines asked everyone to attend his birthday party at 4am so they could enjoy the dawn chorus with him. Since then International Dawn Chorus Day has grown from a small event in Birmingham to an annual international celebration with Dawn Chorus events held as far afield as the Caribbean and Antarctica. To date, over eighty countries have participated.
To top it all off, the Bubbenhall Bluebells should be in full bloom.
