Nature Club: Big Schools’ Bird Watch
Bedford Prep School’s Nature Club had their binoculars at the ready on Thursday 22 February for the RSPB’s ‘Big Schools’ Birdwatch 2018′.
The eagle-eyed boys had great fun spotting and recording all the different birds that share the school’s gardens. They recorded sightings of crows, gulls, collared doves, blackbirds and wood pigeons as well as great, blue and long-tailed tits!
Through Nature Club, the boys have already had great fun making bird feeders and growing cress and spring onions. Over the coming weeks, they will be sowing seeds for even more plants, including giant sunflowers, which will be planted out in the school’s new raised beds after Easter and making nest boxes for their feathered friends in the Design and Technology workshop.Published: February 28 2018
