I am building a record of wildlife visitors to my outdoor classroom. After the success of discovering hedgehogs I’ve been monitoring bird life.
We’re fortunate to have several tall trees providing a rich canopy complete with birds and insect life. I’ve spotted a number of butterflies up in the leaves, but no decent photos yet. The blackbirds however are fairly welcoming.
A robin on a toadstool seat. First one I’ve seen on school grounds.
And one of my favourite smaller birds the pied wagtail. I has discussed how their becoming increasingly urban and that does seem to be showing in the frequency I see them around school.
The kids are interested to see what I’ve discovered. We’ll have to wait and see what we can find next.
