Bird Watching Down By the Estuary
As part of our Outdoor Learning programme and our ethos to be Eco-Heroes to protect nature, some children in Kindergarten visited the Tarka Trail next to the Estuary. Katie 'Fox' and PE coordinator Megan took a small group for a walk to spot Winter wading birds. We had so much fun taking part in the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch, we wanted to learn more about different birds and their habitats. We took books and bird spotting ID sheets. On the map on the Tarka Trail, we learnt all about Curlews and we used the binoculars to try and spot some.
We want to protect nature and sadly we saw litter in the hedgerow. We understand that litter is usually dropped by people, it's man made in a factory and it shouldn't be in the environment. We read the story 'Otto's Ocean' by Emily Hobson-Martin and we want to prevent litter ending up in the sea. The children really enjoyed using the litter pickers and we were also well equipped with clothes and reusable sacks supplies by Surfers Against Sewage.
