Understanding Birdsong: Peter Holden MBE

As spring approaches the song of birds becomes part of our lives again. But who is singing and what does it all mean? Why sing at dawn anyway? This short single course will attempt to answer those questions and there will be a chance to take part in a follow up dawn chorus morning.
