Big Bird Watch

Posted: Feb 9, 2018 by: jayne.peacock on: Learning Blog

Earlier this week, Young Buds took part in the Big School Bird Watch as a follow up to their visit to Rosemoor. The children designed and made their own binoculars, considering camouflage and the habitat that they would be watching the birds within.  The children then honed their observation and data collection skills whilst recording the type and number of birds that they could see at any one time.  Once they had collated their data they submitted their results online.   During the bird watch they saw 1 blackbird, 2 blue tits, 4 buzzards, 2 house sparrows, 9 jackdaws and 10 robins.  If you would like to find out more, please visit the RSPB website.
