We need YOUR help to protect our important seabird heritage

We taught 'Beatrice The Butterfly' all about our seabirds and sang a song about 'loving our seabirds, protecting our seabirds and no no no to rats!'

Red class had been learning all about lifecycles this week, so knew how caterpillars become butterflies and tadpoles become frogs - now they also know the noise a Manx shearwater make in its burrow, and how eggs hatch into birds! 

Thanks red class! Here we are doing the 'butterfly gesture' for Natura 2000 day.
