David Attenborough celebrates International Day Chorus Day with the third of four recordings marking this event. In this programme, we hear a dawn chorus from the marshes of North Warren in Suffolk. On clear moonlit nights the chorus can be an almost continuous chatter and includes reed and sedge warblers, reed bunting and even a bittern, with its booming, foghorn-like call.
