Biodiversity Week: Dawn Chorus at Corlea


Free of charge


5:30 am - 7:00 am


Corlea Iron Age Roadway and Visitor Centre

Wrap up well, bring your flasks and join our guides as we await the fabulous Dawn Chorus on Corlea Bog. While only barely light, this is the best opportunity to hear our wetland birds at their most melodious. Why so early? As the air is cooler and background noise is at a minimum birdsong tend to travel further and is much clearer. At this early stage of the morning bit is still not bright enough for birds to search for food. However approximately an hour later its a very different story!
