Let's hope the weather behaves for this. Some previous dawn chorus programmes on RTE have been blighted by heavy rain fall. You hear more precipitation than bird song.

Had my first of the year in the garden on Monday 13th. That's the earliest record in my home/local area. As a rule, they don't normally arrive in my area until the final 2 weeks of March.

Great footage. Terribly dull, irritating monotone narration though, that spoils the whole thing.

The Slieve Beagh range which straddles the border with Counties Monaghan, Tyrone and Fermanagh hold a small number of grouse. You just have to be lucky to see them. More likely to hear them.
