We are carrying out a study to see what birds we can find in Bray. We would be delighted if you contribute to our survey.

First Class Came to Visit
1st class heard about all our great work with birds. They were very interested so we invited them to our classroom to do some birdwatching with us.
When they arrived we broke the class into two small groups. We gave them binoculars so they could see all the birds outside the classroom window. Five of us were asked to be window-watchers so we could point out different birds to them. They loved looking out the window and they got really good at seeing the birds and finding them on the bird identification posters.
We also showed them all our books and posters about birds and we played some of the videos we have taken of different birds so they could watch how the birds move.
Ms Stone brought us a beautiful painting of blue tits hanging on a branch, which she inherited from her grandmother.
We all have a really lovely afternoon. Thanks for visiting 1st class.
