Pupils at Stretton Handley C of E Primary School have recently completed 3 surveys for The Big Schools’ Birdwatch which takes place every January. The school is within the recording area for Ogston Bird Club and is often on the route of the club’s monthly guided bird walks. The school’s bird hide overlooks a pond, hedgerows and a wooded area where Bullfinches and Tree Sparrows can often be seen in impressive numbers. Full details of this year’s results can be found on the school’s wildlife blog.
