Feed the birds in Winter

As the temperatures outside begin to drop it is important to put out a supply of food for the birds in our school grounds.We use a variety of foods including suet,peanuts and seed mix.We chose locations close to sheltered areas and with good tree cover.We made a plan of our bird feeder locations and we then made a bird feeding map.

We have already observed a few blue tits and thrush feeding in the school courtyard.The crows have also been keeping their crafty eyes on the food.The bird feeding stations will have to be refilled every week and classes will be encouraged to keep a record of the birds that they see visiting the feeders in their classroom wall chart.
