On May 13th we had a beautiful morning for the dawn chorus walk at Bailieborough Castle Lake forest. The walk commenced at 4. 30 am. It was already quite bright and the blackbirds and song thrushes were in full song.
Not only did we enjoy the song of many species of woodland birds, we also took time to enjoy watching the water birds too.

We finished off the morning with coffee and homemade buns while listening to the song of a nearby chiffchaff.  Thanks to Mary for supplying the buns and to Bertha,Collette and Noah for sharing the photos.
