Friday 20th January 2012 – Great Plant Hunt Birdwatching
Great Plant Hunt members started the RSPB birdwatch at lunchtime on Monday 16th January. 30 excited children walked quietly around the school field with clipboards and surveys and recorded all the birds they saw. The children recorded 35 sightings and these results were sent to the RSPB. This will be carried on through out the week every lunchtime. We did RSPB Birdwatch in 2011 and the population has grown immensely. The children were set the task to bring in birdseed. Thank you to Mrs Harris and Mrs Brown for bringing in seed and fat balls, which was useful, as otherwise we wouldn’t be able to attract the birds. We hope we will be very successful in the bird watch program.
