January 2016: Puss Bank Primary School

The Puss Bank  Birdwatch took place on a very windy morning. This didn’t deter the Jackdaws who warmed themselves on nearby chimney pots and the Blackheaded gulls that soared overhead. The children were very excited to spot a pair of magpies on the field.

Eagle-eyed volunteer Mark spotted a Sparrowhawk flying overhead  – the first bird of prey of this year’s Birdwatches.

Most pupils got the chance to get great, detailed views of Wood pigeons in the trees using a telescope.

Birdwatchers also spotted Blue tits, a Goldfinch, a Bullfinch and Siskins foraging in the alder trees .

Macclesfield RSPB Wildlife Explorers would like to thank the pupils and staff for hosting a 2016 Big Schools’ Birdwatch.
