All the students from Hurdsfield Primary School did their Big Schools Birdwatch at Victoria Park in Central Macclesfield.
Children walked from school to the Park and arrived at the bandstand in groups to hear a short introduction about the Birdwatch, how we count and the birds we might see.
They then learned how to use binoculars safely before completing their section of the survey. The children were very enthusiastic and remembered lots of top birdwatching tips from last year,
We spotted an incredible 19 different species with our biggest number of birds being seen as a flock of 30 goldfinches.
Collared Dove 1
Blackheaded gull 9
Lon tailed tit 2
Great tit 2
Blue tit 4
Mistle thrush 2
Great Spotted Woodpecker 1
Feral pigeon 2
