Wake Early To Enjoy The Dawn Chorus

The dawn chorus reaches it’s peak around this time of year.

Every morning from March to July, the finest sopranos, tenors and baritones warm up their voices for the greatest concert on earth.

As breeding season gets underway, birds will sing at their best and with some practice you can learn to identify the dawn chorus singers. Dunnocks and robins are among the earliest to start singing about an hour before sunrise.

Then blackbirds and song thrushes join in as the ground warms and worms become more active. Finally, contributing to the crescendo, wrens, tits and warblers come in, with the tiny call of the goldcrest on stage too. These later arrivals to the choral scene eat insects and are perhaps more sensitive to the coldness of dawn
