Dawn Chorus at Fordhall was a great success
On Saturday morning, although it was reasonably warm, it was very misty which meant the birds could be heard but not seen. Unfortunate as this was, it did not hinder the morning at all and everybody loved it, especially as it was that bit warmer the birds were more vocal which made for the most beautiful sounds! On Sunday it was a lot colder, but very clear and we were fortunate enough to see a beautiful sunrise. We saw a large array of birds, including black caps, rooks, blue tits, owl pellets, robins, sparrows and very excitingly a glimpse of a peregrine falcon.
A huge thank you goes to Paul Rutter who led the walks, everybody learnt a great deal and had a great time.
