Dawn walk in Victoria Park, 26 April 2014

Tickertape edited and produced this event recording for ‘Stereochron Island’, an offsite research project by Cathy Haynes as Chisenhale Gallery’s artist in residence in Victoria Park in east London, 2013-14.

Cathy invited ecologist Peter Beckenham to lead this dawn chorus walk and explain how birds tell time and how we can tell time by the birds. The recording begins with Cathy introducing the event, before handing over to Peter who leads us through the dawn chorus.

For more information about this event and the wide project, see Cathy’s Stereochron Island blog: www.stereochron.org. For more about Chisenhale Gallery, see www.chisenhale.org. Peter Beckenham is from the London Wildlife Trust.
