Friday 21st January 2015: Ivy Bank

After overnight snow Leaders Tina and Susan travelled along some very snowy roads to reach the Ivy Bank Big Schools’ Birdwatch.

Luckily the snow had melted in town leaving just a few icy patches on the playground. The cold weather didn’t deter the birds though as they came to find the seed that the school had put out for them.

The weather took a turn for the worse and our first group of intrepid birdwatchers were actually outside counting birds during a snow shower.

Luckily for the second group the snow shower stopped and we had clearer skies.
