If, unlike me, you weren’t awake at 4am this morning, then you may want to take the chance to listen to the recorded version of this morning’s Dawn Chorus at Cley Marshes in North Norfolk.
Listen again and see some of the photographs I took during the set up and broadcast. (more…)
It’s been a great morning at Cley-next-the-Sea in North Norfolk for International Dawn Chorus Day.
The Norfolk Wildlife Trust site at Cley. played host to the broadcast.
You’ll be able to hear it again later today.
In the meantime this was the live blog I did during the broadcast.
6:15 – That’s it for this year. Thank you for listening and/or reading. See you in 2018!
6:03 – The sun is casting a wonderful light across the marshes which seems to have had a calming effect n our feathered friends. All seems very peaceful. Just the odd little chatter of avocets and a gentle rustle of the reeds. And I think I may have even heard the sound of cattle drifting over the morning breeze.
6:00 – As we move into the last fifteen minutes of the broadcast the shelducks are getting restless and the avocets are busy hunting for breakfast. I can only dream of mine, which is another 3 hours away.
5:50 – That incredible sound was the swan making an exit out over the avocets and terns. (more…)
I was awake for this morning’s dawn chorus, but thanks to the excellent double glazing, I heard none of it. Tomorrow will be very different.
The reason I was awake so early today is that I was going over in my mind all the kit I’m going to need to live stream tomorrow’s dawn chorus from Cley in North Norfolk. It’s International Dawn Chorus Day. (more…)
