Know your birds – Ten feathered friends to look out for along the Madeira Drive Green Wall on International Dawn Chorus Day

There are over 100 types of flowering plant growing on the Madeira Drive Green Wall ‘Local Wildlife Site’.

And there are 10 types of bird that have been seen nesting, or feeding, in these plants.

See how many birds you can spot next time you’re down there…it’s a great time to visit as it’s breeding season and there should be lots of birdsong.

Here’s what to look for, and let us know if you can add to the list!
