We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information re this evening’s programme (26th May 2019). S.R.
To celebrate the recently held International Dawn Chorus day, John Greene was on hand to record not only the feathered orchestra in the early hours of the morning, but also their evensong as well.
On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, we discover that the performance is not really for our benefit, but mainly to defend their breeding territory or to attract a new mate. Whether or which, it’s an ideal opportunity to experience Mother Nature at her very best.
Joining John on the programme will be an environmental biologist and the landowner, who has dedicated most of his life to nature and wildlife. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm on C103″

Our Tidy Towns Committee are looking for your help right now as the planting season is in full swing. Contact Noreen Dennehy and Patricia Randals on 087 617 67 22 if you are available to help. Both men and women are needed. So please give them a ring and be ready to get stuck in and don’t leave it all to Girl Power.
