Good luck with this one!

Monday 30th November

I don’t have lungs or a chest, but I need air.

I am not alive but I grow

I don’t have a mouth, and I don’t like water.

What am I ?

P4/5 were very quiet this morning as they took part in the RSPB’s Big Schools’ Birdwatch!

We saw a variety of birds including a flock of special winter visitors, Redwings, which fly in from Iceland and Scandinavia. Mrs Tominey was excited to see them at school.

We looked in the trees, on the ground, under bushes and in the sky where a skein of geese, about 70, flew north. These were almost definitely pink-footed geese maybe heading for Loch of Strathbeg near Peterhead. We identified some birds by their call and, when we weren’t sure, looked up the birds on an i-pad.

Our list of birds seen in the school grounds and overhead included robins, bluetits, great tits, blackbirds, house sparrows, dunnocks, feral pigeons, wood pigeons and crows. We saw three breeds of gulls which were blackheaded, common and herring including a couple of juvenile gulls.

 

As we went back into school, a grey squirrel was spotted running in the trees!

 

Thank you to Joseph in P6/7 who is excellent at bird identifying and helped us spot the birds.
