Big garden birdwatch popular with pupils

Our pupils got a range of bird species in their sights as part of the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch on 29 to 31 January and helped with important data collection about Britain's bird population.

Pupils in reception Year 1 and 2 helped their chances of seeing birds in their gardens last weekend by learning about and creating bird cake, feeders and binoculars.
A wide variety of birds were seen, including the smaller blue tits, great tits and robins, to the larger wood pigeons and ringed necked doves.
One Junior Boy in Year 6 put out a chicken carcass and then watched magpies and red kites feast and argue over the offering.
Our Pupils identified and recorded more than 12 different species of bird as part of the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. The RSPB website is said to be inundated with the public recording their results. The data gathered will give useful data about the diversity and health of Britain's bird population.
