RSPB Big Schools Birdwatch
One early morning in January, as part of their participation in the RSPB Big Schools Birdwatch, the Junior Eco Warriors went out into the School grounds in search of birds, large and small.
Kitted out in their wellies and brandishing their binoculars, the girls counted and catalogued all the birds they saw, recording a wealth of raw data for spreadsheet and graphical analysis in their ICT lessons.
Here are their impressions:
‘Upper II participated in the RSPB Big Schools' Birdwatch. The cold weather was a challenge but getting out in the morning was ideal, as that was when all the birds came out. We had a successful morning, finding birds like house sparrows and starlings and have submitted our results to the RSPB website.' Sophie
‘We learned a lot and had a fun time.' Imaan
‘Sometimes we saw great flocks of birds but at other times we saw one or two birds pecking on the food we set out.' Shaila
‘We managed to discover about 50 birds altogether, from tall crows to tiny robins.' Ishika
