Class 2 were the first class to complete their part of the Bosley Big School Birdwatch. After some great bird identification practice (using the Top 6 birds from the 2019 survey) it was time to wrap up warm and head outside. Starting with a quick guide to using binoculars safely the class were soon in their element spotting and counting lots of house sparrows and starlings. The group even spotted a couple of magpies collecting sticks for nesting.
The weather got a little more rainy for Class 1 but this didn’t dampen their enthusiasm and there were still plenty of birds in the trees, and the fabulous thick hedges. The class were able to add robin and collared dove to the total. Volunteers were very impressed by how thoroughly the class looked for birds around the school grounds.
We had a lovely morning despite the showers and it was great to see so many smiling faces (from staff and children) many of whom brought in their own binoculars from home.
