May is the month of flowers and birdsong.
It is said that hearing the dawn chorus is important for our own psyche.
This year the county Dawn Chorus event will be in Templemore Park on Sunday, May 3 at 5am.
This is hosted by the Tipperary Branch of Birdwatch Ireland and is open to everyone. Non-members are especially welcome.
There is no charge. The leaders are Tom Gallagher and Kevin Collins.
They will identify the birds, add in bits of folklore and point out other bits of natural heritage in the lovely setting of the town park. Each habitat within the park has its own set of natural citizens.
Come along and find out why, how and when birds sing. Be awed by the nature on your doorstep.
Meet in the park just off the square at 5am.
