Big Schools Bird Watch Update.

Bird watching from the windows in Scott's Hut.

Last week Mary and Crystal from the RSPB came to help us with our Big Schools Bird Watch. We worked in groups to spot birds from the classroom ‘hides’ and Mary and Crystal were able to help us identify the different species.

Crystal helped us to identify the different birds.

We saw 9 different sorts of birds including chaffinches, sparrows, starlings and jackdaws. We will put the records onto the RSPB website. Crystal also saw a mystery bird – a sparrow with a very dark front – which she thinks might be a Spanish sparrow. We wondered what it was doing on Islay. We would much prefer to be in Spain at the moment!

Thank you to Mary and Crystal for helping us.
