Hear the cacophony every two weeks when I arrive to work at 0515. Does you heed in Scotsman.

Been listening since 4.15!!

I hear it now with no complaints. If I swap to the front bedroom I get the boy racer and bus chorus... back bedroom for me for the last 40 years!

I gave up after the Flamingos. When do they sleep?

I hear the dawn chorus every morning - I love it. It's something that takes me straight back to being a twelve-year-old, walking into Hinchley Wood very early in the morning when I was staying with my grandparents during school holidays.

The dawn chorus was almost deafening, and to me it seemed magical. The chorus where I live now is not on the same scale, but it's uplifting, nevertheless.

Living as I do in a rural area we also hear the evening chorus. So anyone know if the birds that sing at sunset are the same as those that sing at dawn?

Quickbeam, on the subject of front or back bedrooms, I've noticed that a family of starlings have opted for a front-facing sunny outlook [front bedroom] in the well-sheltered eaves of a house which has a bus stop and other amenities about five metres from the nest. The human residents don't seem to mind, although it gets rather noisy at feeding time.

Anyone who has spent time in jungles, such as in parts of East Malaysia, will remember the deafening nose at dawn and dusk from howler monkeys.

And the racket from frogs during the monsoon.
