Bird Watching walk around the school

Today we went on a walk to look for birds around the school.  We brought our binoculars, our bird-watching notebooks and our pencils and rubbers.
We had to be really quiet, stay together, and look around in the the trees, the sky, on the buildings, in the bushes, on the ground.

We got on really well.  We saw lots of birds.  The birds we saw today were:
Robin; Magpie; Hooded Crow; Coal Tit; Racing Pigeon; Wood Pigeon; Seagull; Wren; Blackbird; Great Tit; Blue Tit

We also listened to some of the birds singing:
The robin has a lovely, loud, musical chirp.
The pigeon has a soft cooing sound.
The crow has loud, rough sound.
The magpie has a repetitive, loud, rough laugh like a machine gun.

We had a great time and lots of fun.  It's nice to get outside into the fresh air.


  1. Do you have a picture of the racing pigeon? My uncle used to keep racing pigeon when I was young.

  2. I have a picture of the racing pigeons my Dad has a lot of them in his loft .
