Dawn chorus at CAMAC

2 April 2011

Its 6.30am (5.30am at home in Leicester) and I can hear the dawn chorus of songbirds singing and a rooster.  The birds aren’t singing to celebrate the start of a new day, this chorus of songs occurs when birds are defending a breeding territory or trying to attract a mate.  In spring the song is loudest, here’s a recording I took standing at the door of my room at CAMAC.

  1. I love the sounds of the birds. I have birds in my home and they were jumping up and down answering to the sound of the other birds. Thanks

    It sounds beautiful – if a little early! Hope you’re settling in and having a great time
