St Elizabeth Bird Spotters Club is run by our Learning Mentor, Mr Peppard. Children are encouraged to spot many different types of birds in different locations in and around the school and our feeders have been filled in anticipation of another busy spotting year. There are also opportunities for field trips both locally and London wide.

The Mallards have arrived to cool down in our pond. There are three Drakes (males) vying for the attention of one duck (female). Click the link below to see them in action.
Fully Furnished Nest (Cam) For Rent!
On April fools day two twigs appeared inside the nest cam, did we think it was a joke? No, and on our return after the weekend we were rewarded with lots of nesting activity and the occasional glimpse of two coal tits very busy setting up home. Unfortunately our bird house was gazumped as the birds did not return. It's Spring now so hopefully another family will take advantage of our, now, fully furnished home.
Our Nest Cam has been put up in the nature area near the pond. You can view the inside on our screen behind the office near the water coolers.
Our bird spotting group have been out and about in our school grounds checking out all bird activity as part of the 'Big Schools Bird Watch'. Kieran (5C), Gavin (4M), Alfie (4M), Evan (2A) and Sancho (2M) all patiently and quietly observed a number of birds, mostly Pigeons it has to be said, so well done boys! Maybe we will have to get Mr Taylor to build us a Hide!
