Birdsong – TV Premiere



The unique film Birdsong is airing on RTE 1 this Sunday at 6:30pm. Ornithologist Seán Ronayne from Cobh, Co. Cork is on a
mission to record the sound of every bird species in Ireland – that’s nearly
200 birds. He travels to some of the
islands most beautiful and remote locations to capture its most elusive species
and soundscapes: the busy seabird colony of Skellig Michael; a native woodland
free from road noise in the Burren; the corncrake stronghold of Tory Island; a
solitary nest in the Donegal uplands. Along the way we get to know Seán, whose
hypersensitivity to sound has proven both a struggle and a strength. At once
inspiring and cautionary, Seán’s journey illustrates the beauty and importance
of sound, and what listening can tell us about the state of our natural world. Dont miss it!!
