RSPB Big School’s Birdwatch
As people all over the country watched birds in their gardens, our children took part in the RSPB Big School’s Birdwatch. Having built, hung and filled bird feeders, three class bubbles spent time in our grounds spotting and identifying different species. The school grounds offer different habitats that wildlife can enjoy including the orchard, hedges, wildlife area, open field and allotment. The children really enjoyed being outside and engaging with their senses whilst quietly standing, listening and looking. Over all, we identified 16 different species with groups of starlings being the most numerous. One group even spotted a Goldcrest, our country’s smallest bird! Our data has been entered in to the national database with the RSPB and can be seen presented in charts here.
