Thursday 22th January 2015: Terra Nova


Leaders were joined at Terra Nova by a special visitor Maddie, who spent her day off from her internship at the RSPB Reserve at Coombes Valley to help out at our Birdwatch.

In the classroom we talked about the different birds we might see and what they look and sound like.
There were some very observant birdwatchers and everyone was keen to find the birds we had talked about outside in the school grounds.

Conditions were very bright and sunny and everyone had to be careful not to look towards the sun when using their binoculars.

As the school is surrounded by farmland and woodland we saw a wide range of different birds. The school has lots of bird feeders dotted around which meant we saw lots of birds close to the buildings too.
