Troopers Hill
Local Nature Reserve
Dawn Chorus 2008

Video and sound recorded between 04.45 and 05.45 on Wednesday 7th May 2008.

There are several areas on Troopers Hill that were covered in Japanese Knotweed until Bristol Parks started spraying this insidious weed a few years ago. The aim, in accordance with the Management Plan, is to eradicate it. The result is wonderful open spaces in the woods and one of these is where Kit recorded this bird song.

You are looking South West through the trees and as you listen, you can watch the dawn arrive. It was fairly hazy, which together with the South West aspect, meant no sunshine that morning.

The video is one hour long, but if you would like an audio only version to listen to, you can use the links below.
