Pupils from a Birstall school have been spreading their wings, thanks to a new bird hide.

The youngsters have been learning about the Great British outdoors after a new bird hide was installed at the school. Lifelong member of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) Kevin Moore visited the pupils to teach them about the different species of birds.

Each class took part in bird watching sessions using binoculars and bird watching books to find out what wildlife was living in and around the school grounds.

They also made a variety of bird feeders for the new facility. The pupils shared their findings in a special assembly. Headteacher Paul Morton said: “It was a wonderful conclusion to a tremendous first bird day. The amount of learning which took place was very impressive.” Mr Moore said he was impressed with the facilities and enthusiasm of the children.
