School Bird Watch was created by Cathy C
Three teams from Abernyte School have taken part in the RSPB annual birdwatch on 27th January - results are as below:-

As a school we took part in the Big Schools Birdwatch Day on 27th January. This was our 6th year of participating in the event and we always have great fun going out in our Eco Gardening groups for around 20 minutes at a time. We spot the birds in our school garden, identify them and then collate and display our information.

RSPB ask us to spot the maximum number of birds of the same species that we see in the garden at any one time - NOT the total number of birds that we have spotted. (ie we can only count 1 Robin if we see him/her and we can't count it again if it comes back into the garden."
