Good tidings! Here is the recording of the Dawn Chorus from our ancient woodland in Mid-Cornwall on Christmas Day. You can listen to it here

There was rain today (quite torrential at times), but after we got up to check the recording was working (at 6.45am) we went back to bed (we were up till late doing Christmassy stuff) and listened to the live stream. The sounds of the rain and the dawn chorus were very soothing and we drifted back into a lovely sleep.

Merry Christmas!

Just to highlight, that the recordings we are trying to achieve are minute accurate and start at a pre-set time (as one of our long term aims is to provide scientifically accurate data recordings). The recordings start exactly 30 minutes before dawn (at our location in Cornwall, UK) and the recording duration is 90 minutes. (NB: For 2022 we have changed this to 120 minutes)
