Watch the birdy
Feed the Birds Day is a great way to start a feeding station in preparation for the Big Schools Birdwatch in January as part of the national Big Garden Birdwatch. The Big Schools Birdwatch can be a simple one-off activity, or combined with a project to improve school grounds or support curriculum learning.
