An Zesummenaarbecht mam iresche Radio RTÉ an der UER proposéiert de radio 100,7 den 1. Mee vu 6:00 bis 7:00 Auer eng exklusiv Live Iwwerdroung vu Vugel-Gesank aus der Cuskinny Marsh Nature Reserve an Irland.

Vigel sangen ier d’Sonn opgeet oder kuerz duerno. Esou wéi eise Planéit ëm seng eegen Achs dréit, beweegt sech d’Linn vum Sonnenopgank no Westen. Synchron mat där Bewegung leeft eng Well vu Gesank aus Milliounen a Milliarde Schniewele queesch iwwert de Kontinent.
D’Multiplizitéit an d’Diversitéit vun dëse Stëmmen, dat ass den Dawn Chorus, de Chouer vum fréie Mueren. De Gesank vun de Vigel verbënnt eis Mënschen an huet op eis e besonneschen Effet. Mä fir d’Vigel ass Gesank eng serieux Geschicht, well eigentlech geet et ëm hiert Iwwerliewen. Si sange fir hiren Territoire ze verdeedegen; a fir e Partner ze fannen an hir Gene weiderzeginn.

Zënter iwwer 20 Joer iwwerdréit den Derek Mooney um Iresche Radio RTÉ de Gesank vun de Vigel live an Irland. Doraus ass d’Traditioun vum Dawn Chorus Day entstan. An dëst Joer ass doraus esouguer e vill méi groussen europäesche Projet ginn, un dem sech Radiostatiounen a Russland, Norwegen, Holland, an och an England bedeelegt hunn, an deen iwwert d’UER a ganz Europa diffuséiert gëtt.

De radio 100,7 iwwerdréit den Natur-Spektakel exklusiv zu Lëtzebuerg tëscht 6.00 a 7.00 Auer, direkt aus der Cuskinny Marsh Nature Reserve am County Cork am Süde vun der Insel.


International Dawn Chorus Day is the worldwide celebration of nature’s daily miracle. The next International Dawn Chorus Day is 1st May 2016. What is the dawn chorus? This enthusiastic bird orchestra is a beautiful way to start the day.

The dawn chorus is the collective sound of all birds that sing at dawn, usually referring to those sounds made during the breeding season (for most birds, from late March to early July). Each habitat has its own distinctive “chorus members”.

With some rare exceptions, bird song is an activity strictly limited to spring and early summer. To human ears, it may just sound like beautiful music, but to birds it is something quite different. It is a way for rival males to resolve conflicts, establish territory and attract mates.

For many years, the live dawn chorus broadcast each May by Euroradio Member RTÉ, hosted by Derek Mooney, has been a muchloved staple, attracting a wide range of enthusiastic Irish radio listeners at a time of day when most people would still be in bed.

This year, at the initiative of RTÉ, this annual springtime phenomenon is being made available for broadcast by all EBU Members. Members may also participate by providing a live link from a selected venue, with ornithologists on hand to comment on the songs being heard. As it moves from  east to west with the rising sun, the dawn chorus represents a genuine link among all Europeans, transcending national borders and cultures.

Derek Mooney, Executive Producer of Nature Programmes at RTÉ, says: “There is indeed something very special about the dawn chorus. It is ideally suited to radio: indeed, it’s hard to think of anything that is a more natural fit. We think it’s high time that radio listeners in other countries should have the chance to enjoy this amazing connection with the natural world.”

Broadcasted on Radio 100,7 from 6 to 7 AM on May 1st.
