Thanks to everybody who submitted their results and took part in this years Big Schools' Birdwatch!
We will be busy analysing all the data you sent us over the next few weeks, so keep checking back to find out the all important results.
We've had some amazing feedback from people about their birdwatch - why not tell us about yours?
"The children are really enthusiastic and many of them are writing about the birds in their journals. We are having a wonderful time!" The Aviary Breakfast and Afterschool club, Russell Lower School, Ampthill, Beds
Despite weeks of preparation in the run-up to the event, it seems nature can be a little unpreditable as pointed out to us by Southborough Pre-School, Southborough, Kent:
"We have been feeding the birds in our small garden for some time now, and the children have enjoyed making fat balls and peanut strings. Unfortunately on the day we only saw one Magpie actually in our garden....Regardless of the fact we saw so few birds, the children had a lovely time looking for them."
This result may have seemed a little dissappointing on the day, but it's really valuable information, as it helps to tell us where bird populations may be struggling.
There have also been some very impressive whole school birdwatches which I've been told about over the past couple of weeks, where every child has had the opportunity to get involved (as well as one or two parents!) Including Whittaker Moss Primary and Nursery School, Rochdale and Waltham Holy Cross Juniors, Essex.
We have also had some fabulous art work sent to us this year, look out for that in another post...
