Our Birdwatch day at Prestbury C of E Primary started with an assembly about the work of The RSPB and the taking part in the Big Schools’ Birdwatch, part of the biggest wildlife survey in the world.
During lunch break there was rain and sleet but the weather really brightened up in time for our afternoon birdwatching sessions. We used vantage points around different parts of the school grounds and learned the difference Leaders Mark and Frankie helped the children use their binoculars and focus the telescopes.
We saw lots of different birds and we all had chance to learn the way to tell blackbirds, jackdaws and crows apart.
Explorers Harriet and Tilly helped present our assembly and worked hard all afternoon co-ordinating our birdwatch groups and keeping a tally of the birds seen. (Thank you girls!).
Towards the end of the day our favourite spot, a nuthatch, was seen bathed in sunlight at the top of a tall tree. A sunny end to a super Birdwatch day.
