Nature’s Riches at HOHS

Mrs Bird’s nature/bird club went on a summer nature scavenger hunt around the school grounds last Wednesday afternoon in the warm sunshine. We saw enormous black crows on the lawn and parent blue tits, and heard blackbirds and robins calling in the orchard.  We met Mr Crump on our hunt and he showed us a photo of two young hedgehogs foraging in his garden, down by the cowslips behind School House.

We also spotted water boatmen and pond skaters in the pond, but sadly no frogs this year as the damsel fly larvae ate the tadpoles last month!

Until the next tweet…

Blackbirds have flown!

Before the holidays we reported that a blackbird’s nest had been found in the hedge at the back of our main lawns, with four beautiful eggs in it.  We had a little peek and then were careful to leave the nest alone. Today, some of the children in Mrs Bird’s class were excited to find that the eggs have all hatched and, as the fledglings have left, the nest is no longer needed, so they brought it over for a photograph!

Bird Club Tweet

In the last week of term, Mia found this blackbird’s nest in the hedge at the back of our main lawns. Bird Club members will be keeping a close eye on it when school starts again, hoping to spot the fledglings soon!

Until the next tweet…
