Nature lovers’ ramble for the last weekend of the holidays…?

With just a few days of holiday left – hopefully at least some of them sunny and warm – we can’t resist sharing a post from the Hethersett Birding blog.  If you haven’t discovered the little Ladybelt Country Park (on Hethersett road just beyond Ketteringham towards East Carleton), it is well worth a look. Perfect for a gentle family stroll, with or without a four-legged friend and definitely with your camera!  Click the picture below to read the post and see some great bird pictures the author has taken there.

Spotted on Sports Day….

During the noisy sports day event, this mother song thrush sat patiently on her 3 blue eggs in the hawthorn hedge just behind the cheering parents!

I will keep a watchful eye on her progress and will keep you posted!

Mini-camera & bird box has arrived!

A huge thank you from Bird Club to Imogen (Year 1) and her grandad, Mr Glynn, who has very kindly donated a mini-camera and bird box to our school.

The bird box has been fitted to the outside wall of the Year 1 classroom, near the privet hedge, to enable us to watch and record the nesting and hatching activities live on our interactive white board and computer in our classroom.

We hope the blue tits get cracking soon!
