Dawn bird walk in Throne Wood

GROUNDWORK NI will be holding a ‘dawn bird walk’ through Throne Wood this Saturday (May 5) at 5am.

The walk will be led by ornithology enthusiast Dot Blakely and is part of the celebrations for International Dawn Chorus Weekend.

It’s an early start because the birds are livelier at that time and there will be less traffic so their song will be heard more clearly.

This walk is one of a series of activities that Groundwork NI has organised to take place in Throne Wood to make people aware that the area needs help and protection from the local community.
