RSPB Big Schools Bird Watch

by / Friday, 06 February 2015 / Published in Latest News

On Wednesday morning, children from each class in KS2 wrapped themselves up warm, put on their boots and braved the icy cold weather to take part in the RSPB’s Big Schools Bird Watch survey. The children were given a pair of binoculars and a clipboard before setting off to work recording the species of birds around them and how many of each they could see. Judging from the results they collected, they weren’t disappointed.

This is the fifth year that we have taken part in the survey and comparing the results to previous years showed that the efforts we have put in to attract different species into our school grounds are paying off. This survey is taking place in schools all across the country this week and will help the RSPB to build up a picture of the state of bird populations in the UK.
