Birdsong

Taking place on the first Sunday of May, International Dawn Chorus Day is the worldwide celebration of nature's greatest symphony. All across the world people rise early to revel in the sweet sound of birdsong, from rattling wrens in Rotherham to crooning cowbirds in the Caribbean.

Although there will be no events and walks this year, the dawn chorus is something we can all enjoy out of the window. Pray for the protection of landscapes and habitats both near and far. The State of Nature report from 2019 showed that 15% of all UK species (birds and animals) are under threat of extinction.
