Every morning, especially in spring, songbirds across the world welcome the dawning of a new day with their birdsong. The famous ‘dawn chorus’. Join Saltburn Valleys CIO, along with thousands of people around the world, to celebrate the joy of Spring bird song on Sunday May the 5th, International Dawn Chorus Day!
This is the perfect opportunity for nature lovers to gather at dawn at Saltburn Valley Gardens to listen to the sounds of birds as they sing to great the rising sun. Join us as we head out for an early morning walk to soak up the joyous Spring celebration. Led by Steve Ashton, Tees Valley Wildlife Trust’s bird expert, listen out for your favorite birds as well as some more unusual songsters. Watching the sun rise and listening to birdsong its well worth the early start.
