    We'll then pick the best recordings and send them to the Eurovision Birdsong Contest.

    The best contribution will win  a high-quality pair of binoculars worth €1000 provided by Swarovski Optik, So get listening and recording and send us your birdsong. Listen to our sample from West Cork, recorded last year.
