A Visit From The Birdman – we say hello to an American bald eagle!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, the school was visited by The Birdman and 4 of his birds of prey, from The Eagle Heights Wildlife Park in Eynesford , Kent.  A ‘Barn Owl’, an ‘American Bald Eagle’, a ‘Harris Hawk’ and a ‘Peregrine Falcon’ all flew around the school hall, and taught the children about food chains, adaptation, flight, habitat and sustainability.

The children were particularly impressed with the American bald eagle whose wingspan nearly filled the hall and the way she confidently walked across the hall  but we also loved the barn owl who decided to explore the roof of the hall and would not come back the birdman, even when tempted with ‘mouse’ treats.
