To make the most of the dawn chorus, set your alarm for 5.00am and follow these steps.

Make a warm drink

Sit in your favourite chair

Open the window wide

Wait for the dawn chorus

Feel your anxiety fade away as you enjoy nature’s special gift.

The Chorus at Dawn

May is the month to cherish each year,

with the dawn chorus, birds love to share.

From breaking light, they start their trill,

This blissful choir, through the air so still.

The blackbird and robin start their call,

With many followers big and small.

They fill the meadow with tunes, so sweet,

An orchestral performance could not compete…
