Singing With Nightingales: Dawn Chorus
Celebrate International Dawn Chorus Day with this long-form live broadcast of birdsong and spoken word.
Join The Nest Collective online from 11pm on 1st May for a spoken-word journey, hosted by Sam Lee, through some of the finest poems and writings celebrating the nightingale, the wonder of birds and the natural world.
This long-form broadcast will then drift into pure nightingale song through the night and, as the birds rise, will culminate in the dawn chorus itself, finishing at 6am on Sunday 2nd May.
This live broadcast will be available for free on Youtube.
