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.
We also meet some two and four legged residents who are many miles from their natural habitat.
And…….. We hear songs from the late Ronnie Ronalde, a British singer who was famous for his birdsong imitations, and we delve into the archives for a contribution from his West Cork counterpart – the late Dan o’Donovan.
‘Where the road takes me’ – this Sunday evening at 7 – on C103.
