In an echo of three years ago, with today being International Dawn Chorus, emej and I got up at 4 o’clock this morning and headed out in the pitch black to Piddington Woods to hear the birdies. We passed only 5 cars getting there and were the only humans in the woods…

Firstly we heard a nightjar and then Whitethroats, chiffchaffs, willow warblers and all the usual birdies.
