Bitterly cold winds and a smattering of snow didn’t deter the keen birdwatchers at Kettleshulme. Children wrapped up warm and braved the elements with great enthusiasm spotting birds as they were flying overhead and landing in nearby trees.
It was great to spend some time in between sections of the birdwatch in the lovely warm classrooms talking to the children about the importance of monitoring bird populations. Everyone was enthusiastic about identifying birds and learning how to use binoculars properly and safely.
Outside from the playground, even with the wind blowing we could still hear a Robin singing and a flock of Goldfinches calling from the top of a tree.
Top spot of the afternoon was a kestrel that flew between perches on the drystone walls looking for food.
