BBC big bird watch 2018

BBC big bird watch Primary 4-7

One day we went to participate in the BBC big bird watch so we went round Banton not right round so we went past every single house but we did go round the majority of the village. Mr Carter was here because he helps us with the nature sort of stuff at our school. We went round after lunch time it took us a while.

We seen loads of birds like
• Blackbirds
• Robins
• Blue tits
• Street pigeons
• Collared dove
• Starlings
• Jackdaws
• Chaffinch
• Crow
• House sparrows
• Rooks
• Carrion crows
• Wood pigeons

There was 109 different birds we spotted the most common birds we spotted were starlings and jackdaws it was quite fun some people had binoculars with them like people took shots of Mr. Johnson’s and Mr. Carter also had some and me too. It was a amazing time for some of us but some people moaned about how sour there feet and legs were.

you can read about some of the birds we see in Banton Birds.

Blaeberry Mou

The Biggies have been making some animations of “Blaeberry Mou” a poem in Scots by William Soutar.

Listen out for Fulton’s playing of the chanter!

Blaeberry Mou
The flitterin faces come doun the brae
And the baskets gowd and green;
And nane but a blindie wud speer the day
Whaur a’ the bairns hae been.

The lift is blue, and the hills are blue,
And the lochan in atween;
But nane sae blue as the blaeberry mou’
That needna tell whaur it’s been.

William Soutar
