Our Birdwatch morning at Ivy Bank was a morning of contrasts – the weather went from cold and damp to snowy and then bright sunshine in a matter of minutes! Luckily the weather didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of keen birdwatchers in Year 1 and Year 3.
After a brief introduction to the Top 10 garden birds from last year’s Birdwatch (with some fabulous name guesses – including my favourite for a goldfinch …… a loyal finch) and some tips on binocular safety , four different classes took it in turns to head outside.
Several groups were treated to great views of a very confident blackheaded gull striding across the playground and a colourful jay on the far side of the playing field. In total we saw more than twenty species.
