WildLearning Bird ID Challenge

 

How many common birds can YOU identify?  Do you see birds visiting your feeders and wonder what they are?

 

As part of our WildLearning in school, we want to encourage all pupils to learn how to identify a range of common species of birds that they might see around school. We are putting in lots of exciting spaces to help them learn more about birds and have set up an great new challenge which we would love ALL pupils (and staff!) to take part in!

 

You may have already seen our wonderful bird hide and our feeding station. This area will be full of interactive displays to help everyone learn to ID the birds and hopefully, they will also see some of them feeding on our feeding stations so they can get practising their ID skills! There is also a display outside the staffroom showing the levels and who has achieved each of the levels.

 

 

LEVEL 1 Bird ID
