Live on BBC Radio Ulster from Midnight
Hear BBC Radio Ulster presenter Annie-Marie McAleese and Dr Kendrew Colhoun from the RSPB on International Dawn Chorus Day (Sunday 1 May) as they link up with RTÉ and across Europe to celebrate this ornithological opera.
Following from the success of last year’s link-up, Anne-Marie will once again be joining RTÉ’s Derek Mooney and, in addition this year, several other broadcasters from across Europe live on air throughout the night – including Radio Russia, NRK Norway, and BBC Radio 4.
Presenter Anne-Marie, along with Dr Colhoun, Senior Conservation Scientist with the RSPB, will be at Tollymore National Outdoor Centre, outside Newcastle, in County Down.
This year’s Dawn Chorus programme runs from Midnight until 7am offering listeners the chance to hear some fascinating conversation about the nature of birdsong, and the wonder of the chorus itself as our avian friends wake up across Europe.
