Anyone can follow this public performance using #dawnchorus or join in by tweeting @NTlovesLondon. People are invited to observe a place they know, out of hours, and craft tweets reporting the sight and sound of daybreak. Writers, poets, bird lovers, outdoor enthusiasts and the wider public are invited to tweet about a place that is special to them. Dawn Chorus is part of the National Trust’s innovative partnership with Chelsea Fringe. It is part of The London Project’s exciting 24-hour programme, Wild About London.
