Blackbird, first to wake up
video credit to pat.sparrowhawk
In preparation for our Dawn Chorus Walk on 26th April, here is a youtube video of a male blackbird singing. It's him singing all through the 3 minute video but you also see pictures of 'his friends' a cock chaffinch, a pair of dunnocks, a greater spotted woodpecker and a blue tit.
Blackbirds are the first to start singing just before sunrise. Open your window at about 5.00 am and you are sure to hear several.
