Our Trip to Bray Harbour: Visiting the Swans

What a team!!
In January our class went for a walk down to Bray Harbour to visit the colony of mute swans that live there. 

We had to remember a few rules:
Don't get too close to the swans as they are terretorial birds.
Stay calm and quiet so we don't scare the birds.

It was a great experience as we saw loads of birds, and we were very close to them.  It was a great change to look at their behaviour and what they look like.

We took some photos.

We fed the birds.

We took loads of photos of the birds and the harbour, and of course of each other.

Some of us brought food so we could feed the birds.

I'd like everyone to leave a comment about what they enjoyed most during the day.  What are your special memories?
