General information

Dawn Chorus With a Difference

Join RSPB Northern Ireland to experience a dawn chorus with a difference! Enjoy a short walk in the Antrim Hills listening out for upland species like drumming snipe and the bubbling cry of the curlew – all before breakfast.

The event will be headed up by Conservation Advisor Neal Warnock, who works closely with around 70 local landowners to help give nature a home in the Glenwherry area.

Glenwherry is a ‘hotspot’ for threatened breeding wader species like lapwings and curlews.

Last year the overall number of breeding waders in the area increased to 247 pairs - the highest number recorded since the 1980s.

Don’t worry if you’re a birdwatching beginner - Neal will be on hand with tips and advice, as well as some spare binoculars.

As well as the amazing array of birdlife, this area of the Antrim Hills is a must-visit for its stunning scenery. And, if that’s not enough to tempt you, this event will finish up with a delicious breakfast at popular local cafe, the Misty Burn.

The early bird catches the worm, so reserve your place today.

Opening times

Meet at Misty Burn café at 05:30. The event will run until approximately 08:00.
