This landmark simulcast in early May brings together the EBU and BirdLife International, the global partnership of bird conservation organizations.

Winner both of the National PPI Radio Award for Innovation and the highly regarded International Rose d’Or award for European Radio Event of the Year, the programme has become one of the broadcasting highlights of the year, not just in Ireland but across Europe and beyond. Featuring live birdsong and expert commentary from around the world, it offers an unmatched live celebration of our shared natural heritage. 

This unique sound journey enables listeners to track the great wave of birdsong as it shifts from east to west with the rising of the sun.
