Do you know your Woodpecker from your Chaffinch?
Students at Priory Community School Academy in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset have embraced birdwatching as part of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB)’s ‘Big Schools’ Birdwatch’ campaign.
The Schools’ Eco Committee, which is completely student led, promotes positive action across the school and community concerning wildlife conservation, litter picking, reducing plastic use and promoting sustainable, green projects.
Their latest campaign as a group has been to launch this competition to support the RSPB by asking students to take bird surveys at home or by spotting birds around the school which are depicted on posters.
The RSPB has around 1.2 million members and 18,000 volunteers at home and around the world. They are dedicated to their work: ‘we save, protect and fight for nature’ (RSPB website).
More information and forms can be found here. Why not look out for the beautiful feathers and beaks and colours of birds in your own garden or park?
