RSPB Big School’s Birdwatch

From the 20th of January to the 14th of February, pupils from Abernyte took part in the annual RSPB Big School’s Birdwatch.  Following previous inputs from The Tayside Swift Survey, pupils spent time learning about their local winged neighbours and the important role of conservation.

Pupils worked together to make their own bird feeders which were hung up and learned how to identify different species from their calls or their physical shape and markings.  Groups of pupils worked to spot, identify and count birds seen in the playground over a set period of time and all information was collated and sent to the RSPB to be fed into their nationwide data where it is used to keep track of bird numbers and identify any possible declines in species populations.
