Armed with their identification guides, pupils in Key Stage 2 spent an hour watching and counting the birds around the school.
The pupils observed a variety of common garden birds including blackbirds, blue tits, collared doves, great tits, green finches, a magpie, a robin and starlings.
We didn’t actually see as many birds as usual but we think it is because we had a visit from a sparrowhawk a few days before the bird watch.
All the information will be sent to the RSPB who will compile a report to share with the school and other schools that have taken part.
