With blue skies and soaring temperatures forecasted this weekend there is no better time to get outside and enjoy the wonders of nature.

This weekend sees the return of International Dawn Chorus day - a day to listen and celebrate one of natures greatest spectacles. 

With just about every garden bird now joining in, from blackbirds and robins to chaffinches and wrens, now is the time in the year to get out and take it all in. 

It doesn't matter if your a keen early birder or would prefer to listen from the comforts of your own bed with a cuppa tea, the RSPB's Jamie Wyver is on hand with all the need-to-know information and how you can make the most of the dawn chorus as a family.
