Pupils at The Webber Independent School took part in the Big Garden Birdwatch, the world’s largest bird survey.

They spent an hour bird watching last Thursday recording the highest number of each bird species seen outside at any one time. Students reported seeing a wide selection of popular garden birds as well as some rarer species, more often seen in woodland areas.

More than half a million people took part in the annual RSPB bird counting scheme aimed to help assess the UK wildlife.

Principal Sue Vig said: “We felt taking part in the Big Garden Birdwatch was a great way for our students for them to learn about the importance of nature.”

The Webber Independent School will be holding a GCSE and Sixth Form open day on February 11 at 7pm and a pre-prep through to seniors open event on February 25 from 2pm. Visit www.webberindependentschool.com for full details or to book a tour of the school at a time to suit you.
