School Council and Cafod Club participated in a national scheme called the RSPB Big Schools’ Birdwatch. The survey helps to build a picture of garden wildlife across the U.K. Last year thousands of schools all over the country took part.
Using binoculars, we viewed different types of birds around the school grounds and in Katie’s garden. We were excited to see a herring gull and several blue tits. All of our sightings were recorded on a fact sheet.
We had a great time learning about the different colours and markings on the birds that we found. The following day at our School Council meeting, we collated our results ready to submit online. With these results, the RSPB can spot problems in bird population and more importantly, they can consider how to put things right if necessary.
