It turns out that 1st May 2011 was International Dawn Chrous Day. People around the world were organising events, getting up at 4am and walking round to hear the birds.
I only found out about it a day later when, by complete coincidence, a friend came round with his recording equipment to record the dawn chorus in Dog Kennel Hill Wood. The birds put in a good performance and the plan is to upload the recording to the website so everyone can listen. The files need a bit of work to get them web-ready so it might take a little while.
Next year it would be nice to organise a proper event.
** UPDATE OCT 2013 **
The Dawn Chorus recording is now available to buy for only £5. It was too large to put up on the website! All proceeds go back into the wood. Please get in touch if you would like to buy one. More info here »
