Today Karen McKelvie, from the RSPB, came to work with us on the BTO (British Trust for Ornithology) Under your feet survey. As part of our animal project we will be surveying the school grounds to see how many invertebrates there are here. They are an important part of the local food chains. We will also be doing bird surveys. All this is part of the Citizen science project and we will be uploading our data for a national project three times during the year.
Here are some photos from this morning, when we dug our pits and then looked for the invertebrates, we were surprised to find so few.
