This year Nightingale Nights is supporting the 'National Nightingale Festival' - visit https://www.rspb.org.uk for event listings. Follow @NgaleNights for updates on Nightingales and live broadcasts of birds.
Ask your local radio station to get behind the campaign to bring back the old BBC tradition of broadcasting nightingales live by helping people find out where they hear Nightingales and be part of broadcasting them live to help reconnect everyone with this amazing but endangered bird.
If you have never heard a nightingale this is what you’re missing. Close your eyes and imagine you are in an English woodland on a warm Spring evening and out of the gloom comes this magical bird song.
Listen to the spine-tingling sound of this Nightingale recorded in a Northamptonshire wood by Nick Penny
Here’s a great way to make real difference and help Nightingales. Please tell your local newspaper and radio station about the campaign ! The best way is to write in your own words but you may like to download and attach this Press Release, which can also give you ideas. …
Nightingales are arriving in England at about the same time as last year – or so it seems. we’ve had reports of Nightingales from Kent, Lincolnshire, Suffolk and Northamptonshire. Above: BTO Birdtrack data (blue line 2015). Do tell us if you see any, or more likely, hear them !
