Wildlife in my local patch

Hampshire UK

International Dawn Chorus Day 2015

dawn-chorus-jghYesterday morning we got up early to do a dawn chorus walk in our local wood. An amazing variety of sound, although strangely there seemed to be even more in the garden than in the wood. Mainly songthrush, blackbird, robin, wren, chiffchaff, long tailed tit, chaffinch, wood pigeon, pheasant and next door’s cockerel!

Here’s me at 5am. Listen to the soundcloud file to get an idea of the variety.
