The Dawn Chorus

The first Sunday in May is International Dawn Chorus Day. As part of the May Sunday Festival last year, we were privileged to have the Killeagh Inch Parish Pastoral Council present a guided walk at sunrise with Pat Smiddy, teaching us to how to listen and identify the birds of Glenbower Wood.  It made for a beautiful morning, enjoying the grand procession of morning calls and bird song to begin the festival day.

As this year is a little different for everyone, we’d like to share an online guide to identifying some of the unique bird calls for your own walk in the woods – here

Here is a snippet of birdsong from Glenbower wood from our own walks
