RSPB’s Big Schools’ Birdwatch

Share This Post

This month we have been taking part in the RSPB’s Big Schools’ Birdwatch. We have been busy feeding our feathered friends and making yummy treats for them. In forest school we have been building hides so that we can watch the birds through our binoculars without scaring them. We have also been listening out for different bird calls – we heard a lovely loud Great Tit this morning. We have been thinking about what the birds are saying when they are singing. If you listen carefully I wonder if you can understand what they are saying, it could be… “good morning, hi, how are you…” or “watch out, danger!” or “go away, this is my tree, buzz off!” or “how you doin’ 😘(in a Joey from Friends manner)” or little chicks shouting “feed me, feed me!”

If you would like to help the RSPB why not take part in their annual Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend. Our preschool children have taken a pair of binoculars and birdwatch check list home so they can take part over the weekend.

Hmmm… I wonder what bird that is….
We also spotted 2 deer whilst birdwatching!
How many birds can you spot in the picture? And do you know the species?
