Join RSPB NI from 5.30am on Sunday, 1 May to celebrate International Dawn Chorus Day at Glenwherry in the Antrim Hills.

Local conservation advisor Neal Warnock will lead a guided walk through the area where RSPB NI is working with local farmers to benefit threatened birds.

It will be a unique opportunity to see and hear several upland species, including the bubbling cry of the curlew and drumming snipe. The group will then return to Misty Burn cafe for a well-deserved breakfast! This event is free for RSPB members or £8 for adults/£5 for children.

Booking is essential by calling 028 9049 1547 during office hours or emailing amy.colvin@rspb.org.uk.
