Seymour department have been taking part in the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch this week and they headed down to the bird hide at Patchwork Farm to catch all the action.
We’re very lucky to have lots of wildlife on site including our farm animals, birds, cows, foxes and even deer have been spotted near the premises.
We left out bird seed and feeders made by the young people to attract the birds and we all stayed very quiet to see if any would come down.
Although the group didn’t see many real birds, they did enjoy meeting the fluffy puppet ones and learning about all the different types of birds that they might see. We used binoculars to survey the area and managed to spot a few in the trees. Young people used their switches to experience the noises each bird might make.
It was a lovely sunny morning for it and the young people had a great time exploring the bird hide and interacting with the materials.
